thanks for the tip i am gona have to get some teflon grease
i just wanted to add that i have had several liteon drives
a 16x10x40 the tray was fast
a friend with a 24x10x40 the tray was slower
and my 52x24x52x is by far the slowest
my friend has the 52x32x52x and its tray is much quicker
interesting to see that its controlled by the firmware
pretty funny that i did a search on google for slow liteon tray and this was the first link
oh and about these being gear driven i have used and own many cdroms and burners and dvd drives i count 10 and some are gear driven and some are belt driven and trust me the older ones were both quiter and quicker.
i wish they would change the firmware for at least there other in production drives to how they have it in the 52x32x52x
or let us select how we want it ourselfs that would be awesome.
while they are at it they should have a temporary override for full speed because sometimes it reads something slowly just because it detects its a movie but i am trying to copy a file from it not watch it.
i had an old drive which let me change read speed and time before spin down with a utility, it was cool.
