I have a Optiarc AD-5170a drive and I am getting many errors when I verify ISO burns. I tried different files with Nero, Ashampoo and different CDRW’s from LASER and BENQ. The strange thing is, those disks support x12 speed, but both Ashampoo and Nero only give me the option of x10 speed, nothing else.
So I thought the problem is with the firmware, and I wanted to flash the newest firmware 112bt_rpc1 with Binflash. Yeah I read all the warning about I should switch my drive to PIO mode, but I could not find out HOW to switch. I googled and read about changing in Device Manager, went there but could not find any option about PIO or UDMA4. I got into BIOS SETUP of my ASUS M2N-MX motherboard. There I found only the options PIO Auto, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and UDMA Auto, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. No enabling or disabling PIO. So I left it the way it was . PIO in Auto mode , and UDMA in Auto mode.
So I flashed it anyway, and I got the checksum error.
What to do now? I wanna flash again, but how can I switch my drive to PIO?
