I couldn’t get my 708A to read DVD-Video’s any faster than 2X, even with the holding-eject-button trick (I followed the instruction carefully but didn’t work). The speed can’t be changed using Plextools either.
So are there any other ways to speed it up? It took me almost 40 mins to make a DVD image, which usually takes only 15 mins on normal speed (6-8X). Since my comp can’t fit two drives I can’t put a DVD-ROM in. Any help would be appreciated.
