I recently purchased a LTR-52327S for my new system with a Asus A7V8X-X motherboard. It reads pressed media instantly, like any normal CD drive should, but when I put in CDs I burned, it takes a looong time to calibrate the laser and begin the read. On my LTR-52246S the burned CD's read instantly mind you.
It can take as long as 20 seconds to start reading the burned media. However, pressed media always reads instantly, any ideas whats going on?
BTW, the firmware revision is QS53, November 18, 2003, if this helps any. Thanks.
EDIT: Sorry forgot to mention. The 52327s is connected to the secondary IDE channel by itself, set to master, and I am using the standard MS drivers for the IDE channel and the drive itself.
