Hey everyone, I've got a problem with Dvd drives not being able to read movie dvd's any faster than about 3x (never seems to "spin up"). Most recently I've purchased the Lite-on iHAS324, still not making a difference. Here's what I've checked:
-DMA (UDMA5) is enabled.
-Deleted the drivers, restarted, and let windows find again
-Replaced motherboard from a Gigabyte to MSI (G41 chipset)
-Motherboard firmware is current
-Firmware on DVD drive is current
-Tried different SATA cables
-Tried different SATA ports
-Tried 2 Samsung drives and currently the Lite-on
-Tried making sure there were no upperfilters in registry
-Currently using Windows 7 (fresh copy; 4gb's of ram, intel quadcore, velociraptor hdd)
- I use DVDFab as the main program; although I've also tested with OptiDrive.
-As far as data dvd's, regular cds, or data cd's, it works perfect; just when trying to play dvd movies (tried different dvd movies with same result)
-Tried downloading different codecs as well
So, I'm out of ideas, anyone help plz?
