I used to be able to rip at about an average of 10-12x but suddenly yesterday my drive now rips at .2x!!! I tried to cross flash the JY07 (liteon) firmware and hope it fixed the problem but no. I used omnipatcher on the firmware and increased the ripping speed to 16x and that didn't help either. Weird thing is that last night it ripped a DVD just fine at 10x and now again (same DVD) it rips at .2x! Whats going on? When i run nero dvd/cd speed it says LC-UNRECOVERABLE ERROR 031105 (if I remember the error correctly). With any-dvd and nero recode it stops after about 5 seconds of first pass analysis and then errors out.
What can I do? Is my drive dead?
DMA is on, and I delect my IDE cable that its on in windows and it still will burn at 8x (Ridata R03)
