What’s the scoop here? What was previously a three to four minute burn (at 40x with TDK 32x media) is now 12 minutes, if the burn succeeds at all. Drive speeds up, slows down, speeds up, slows down, speeds up, slows down… Exhibits same when trying to read. Up, down, up, down… seems to be searching. Also, the drive is now much, much, much slower to read/respond (auto run or eject, for example) than my 166S. Before the flash, both drives operated very similarly in read mode.
52246S is in UDMA Mode 2 and is Master on secondary IDE bus. Have reflashed. Both the original flash and reflash were deemed ‘successful’. Hardly… Have uninstalled/reinstalled IDE drivers to no avail. Flashed back to 6S0D, same troubles encountered.
All of these problems began the moment after the flash to 6S0F and subsequent reboot.
