Laptop - Evesham Quest (A UK PC and notebook builder)
DVD Drive - Sony RW-Q58A
My laptop drv-rw is only playing dvd’s at 0.8x speed resulting in choppy video and audio. It was fine with cd’s and dvd’s last night, this afternoon it’s all screwed up for no obvious reason. In the device manager I have set both the primary and secondary channels to dma if available (although the secondary shows up as the current mode as being PIO).
I’m not exactly PC knowledgable and have stretched my meagre abilities. Anyone any ideas or is it just the drive on it’s way out?
Ps I have cleaned it with a lens cleaner, and I updated the firmware to UYS3 all to no avail.
Hope someone may have an idea…
