I’ve just bought a Benq 1640 and using it externally with a laptop via USB2. I have it in a Prolific PL-3507 housing(SumEVision).
When I try to rip any DVD/DVDR, I can’t get above 0.6x on the rip.
I’ve previously had a Pioneer 107 - that used to rip fine.
I tried the Benq with a Cypress based chipset - the Benq isn’t even detected. I’ve used the Prolific housing with a Pioneer 109, however whilst the rip was fine, on the burn I consistently got ‘The Semaphore Timeout Period Has Expired’.
I’m trying to rip with DVD Decrypter.
Further confusing the matter, the 109 would only rip at full speed when I had Medions 1.17 firmware installed.(It comes from a Medion).
Does anyone have ANY idea what may cause this?
