[QUOTE=Ibex;2741932]Some drives deliberately go slow when reading audio CDs, assuming that noise is more important than speed. Samsung is the only make I can think of where it could be switched off.
What software are you using? A lot of drives run slowly when using C2 pointers for secure extraction.
As I mentioned in your other thread, I’m a fan of Samsung drives for audio extraction. And there is a Toshiba-Samsung (TSST) slim internal slot-loading drive available here in the UK.
Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I can’t find that drive with a bezel, which is what is needed for the eject button, also it is a discontinued drive so only old stock available and I need to be able to buy replacement drives as they fail.
I have a TSST SH-216DB which will rip anything, bit perfect. I also have 2 old Optiarc 7241s’s which are pretty decent, but not bit perfect.
The system is running Vortexbox which is based around Fedora and EAC.
I have tried the drive in Windows 8.1 and it exhibits the same behaviour.
Is it possible to dump the firmware and edit it for LG drives or run an app to change a setting like the TSST drives?
