FYI:Nero Cd Speed and Infotool and VIA 31.4 miniport drivers

I had the VIA 31.4 miniport drivers installed on my WinXP Athlon system with Abit KR7A-RAID…

Nero CD speed and Infotool did not report results…I could not run any CD Speed test…

Uninstalled and they work fine…

I had somewhat similar results on my Abit Athlon K7RA-133R and Win XP Pro and a Verbatim flashed to a LiteOn 48125W VS06 except I could run CD Speed. Nero showed Mt Ranier was supported, but Infotool did not have a tick next to it. I discoverd this because I when installing the latest VIA 4in1’s it said I had to uninstall miniport first, and then without doing anything else InfoTool reported Mt. Ranier support. I could also use then use LiteON’s windows firmware flasher successfully (previously it took forever and then the compare of the BIN to dram failed. I installed the minports and Mt Rainier was no longer shown as supported

ahh interesting… is that why dvd speed, cd speed spits out a read error… although scandisk did work…
