ok, well first off, ive been having this discussion on another form for a while now and none of us can get any where with it, so before it get into this, im gonna copy and paste my posts from that thread into here.
1 hour total to rip and burn (rips on average about 2500-3000 kbps )
ultra dma 2 enabled
ive tried using 3 different firmwares. oem, 12x omni patched version, and the 16x rip hack. when burning in the program, my speeds always stay the same though despite the changes.
in nero dvd speed, with the 16x hack, ive tested up to 14x, and the drive is spinnin like crazy,
when i go to rip in any program (nero, nero recode, dvd shrink, clone dvd, dvd decryptor, dvd x copy)
it spins up like it would for the speed test when it was gonna read really fast, then around 3%, it stops spinnin and goes really slow (and only does this when trying to rip, doesnt do this in the speed test) and remains to go slow and quiet for the rest of the rip (2500-3000kbps ish)
this happes with ALL discs, pressed, copied, every thing.
ive tried running nero drive speed in teh back ground set at maxium - no change
tried runnin any dvd - fastest read settings - no change
heres a snap shot from when i had the 12x firmware installed, speed test
and heres some snap shots from dvd shrink and dvd decryptor with the same firmware that i tested that on
ive tried killing all but vital processes, and i just formatted my computer. same result before and after format.
all latest chipset drivers
i am lost. thanks for reading. ive been putting so much time into trying to fix this and im getting no where. PLESE HELP!
