Hi there. After reading hundreds of posts here I can't seem to find a complete answer to my problem. Using FW A104, my 8X media will only burn @ 4X. I flashed to official FW versions A111 & 115 and (without burning), my software now gives the option to burn @ 8X. As I went to rip a disc to test the burner out, I noticed a lot of read errors using DVD Decrypter (& other programs). Also, the Read/Rip speed Dropped to an avg. of 1.1X. DVD Decrypter estimated 55 minutes to rip a disc!
Now I seem to be getting read errors using various programs as well. - Unrecovered Read Error - Invalid Field in CDB.
I'm looking for some input on fixing this and a general idea of the speed at which others are able to read/rip using the same drive. I'm pretty sure I was ripping around 4X before. I'd like to be able to burn DVD-R @ 8X (been using Ritek G05's) and rip at a reasonable speed. Thanks.
