After a discussion with the great CodeKing about slowness of the drive in question, he give me the opportunity to test a patched version of the most recent firmware for this very cheap and silently but slow SATA DVD reader drive!
In detail, i was bored by the read speed of DVD+/-R discs, locked @ 12x :Z
The first two read speed test that i made returned me the following results:
- Disc 1: TDK 003 DVD+R (sorry for the 16x limit in the graph)
- Disc 2: Ritek G05 DVD-R
As you can see, the read speed now is undoubtedly better!
Unfortunately i can't test with DVD+/-R DL discs
I leave to the author of this the decision to publish or not this version of firmware, which I think is perfect :iagree:
One again, many tanks CodeKing!
