Is pressed the same thing as original?? Well, anyway, what I meant was that it is an original movie.
I just tried unplugging the hard drive thats sharing the IDE port with the 3550 and the results were the same. I also tried connecting it to another IDE controller available on the motherboard (asus P5LD2) and again the results were 3x on average.
Seems I don't have any other hardware options to try, right? Maybe something on the software end then?
Just in case I'm eyeballing a BenQ 1640 on ebay...
