I have a 3540A and I'm having problems ripping dvd's. I am using it as an external drive in an enclosure. At first I had a problem of it not reading dvd's well at all until I upgraded the firmwire to 1.5W. On some dvd's it will rip them fine and others, ripping will start, but goes to 0.0x always at 1%. It does this with and without the riplock enabled(tried the 2 different firmwires). Once this happens, I usually have to restart my computer because it almost like it crashes.
On the other hand, my lite-on 812 does anything like it suppose, but only slower
oes anyone have any suggestions before I sell this drive?
