I’m sorry if this has been asked before, but doing a search didn’t answer my question.
I have a JLMS XJ-HD166 (no “S”) that came with my Dell PC firmware version DD06.
It rips DL DVD’s at about 8x and I was hoping to speed it up a bit with some better firmware.
Is this drive the same as the HD166S’s?
–I coudn’t find confirmation so I took the chance anyways and flashed it with the Code Guys 166S.DS1E firmware. The result was a drive that ripped at 0.5-3x constantly speeding up and down, with estimated times over 1 hour.
If it is the same hardware, then what could be the problem?
–It was in Ultra DMA mode 2 at the time, with no device conflicts. PC spec’s below.
If it is different hardware then I’ll just keep using the slow Dell firmware.
Thanks in advance for any help.
