i got it. my benq drive is reading at 1.56x??????? what is going on here? how can I set up reading speed on my benq?
what kind of disk is it reading? and does it do this with all disks or is this something that just started after you adjusted the jumpers?
if it just started then more than likely after your adjustments your drive is may be operating in PIO mode instead of DMA you can check in device manager under ATAPI\IDE controlers. under the advanced tab it will show what mode it is operating in.
one reason for this change may be your adjusments. by default dell uses cable select on it's drive setups instead of master and slave. if you have set your new BenQ to master while any other device on the same IDE cable is set to Cable select this could cause problems.
