It’s labeled as being a 16x drive, as I’m sure you all know…but as I’m sure you’re also all aware of, it has problems reading at over 2.1x. Just flashed to 2.97, hoping it might do something…No such luck. It’s slave to my NEC ND-2500A…uhh that’s about it, I’m just basically curious if there’s a firmware to get rid of the read speed limitations on the drive. Or if there was some way around it…?
My drive wasn’t limited to 2.1x, but it never read any faster than about 4.5x
If your drive is stuck at 2x, then you probably need to enable DMA for the drive since 2x is what a drive usually does without DMA.
dma is enabled, though…
