Just built a new system, specs at bottom. One of the first tasks I tried to test the speed was music ripping and encoding. Loaded up EAC and max rip speed on this drive was about 2.3X. You could hear that the drive wasn’t even spinning up. Made multiple tries. Took 12 minutes to rip the first track. I tried several other programs including CDex, EZ-CD X-tractor…same thing. dB Poweramp rips at better speeds…up to 20X or so but its a pay trial and I don’t really want to buy it.
- The LH-20A1S is on the Intel SATA-2 spot with IDE compatibility mode (not ACHI mode).
- DMA mode is enabled.
- Latest firmware revision as per LiteOn site.
- Tried several different, non-damaged cd’s.
Any ideas? Think this is just an SATA issue? Anyone else having this issue with their LH-20A1S?
