I just bought this drive. It has firmware GS03 installed.
I understood it was a X16 read drive but I have just tried to decrypt my copy Terminator 3 main feature disc and it took ages (13 and a half mins) a good 4 minutes slower than my Benq 1640 writer on the same device id and channel.
the Liteon is set up as device 0 on the second ide channel, no other drives on that channel. the deive is reportedly set up as ‘ultra dma mode 2’ I thought it would be 4.
What concerns me is that nero info tool reports the drive as a 8X drive (in the drop down box it gives options for 2.0,4.0,6.0 and 8.0) and it certainly seems to operate as an 8X drive.
I’ve removed the UDMA controller and the primary and secondary controllers and rebooted twice but nothing changed.
