I have a LTC-48161H, and my DVD (pressed) ripping speeds seem to max out at 2.6x. I heard that this was merely an artificial limitation, has there been a fixed firmware to remove this limit? I have seen limits for burned media removed, but not for pressed.
Read first: How do I get my burnt DVDs to read faster?
There is no limit for pressed media. The drive reads as fast as it is able to.
as you can see from the scan below my 48161 tops around 16x
suspect the following: dma, nvidia ide drivers, via ide drivers
