Lite-On 48-speed CR-ROM

This must have been asked - and answered - someplace but can someone help me as a newbie - please?

I just bought a Lite-On LTN-483S CD-ROM drive and using Nero’s CD Speed utility can only get an average data transfer speed of approximately x 9.9 and a burst speed of 1 MB/s.

Using the same utility I try to run scandisk on both audio and data CD’s and the tool telles me “this drive seems unable to report damaged sectors”.

This is a shame because I like the mechanism this drive uses and it’s very quiet in operation. Just hoping I can make it deliver something closer to its spec.

Can anyone advise? Please… :bow:

As for the speed, it sounds as though DMA is not enabled onthe drive/channel.
