Just got a new Asus after reading a good review here. I wanted a fast ripper and good error correcting on difficult pressed DL DVD’s.
I was really disappointed at how slow it ripped, slower than any of my other drives (Asus 1606, NEC 3550, Lite-On (?), and Samsung).
It also choked in Shrink at the same spot on a certain movie I own that has fine scratches that all my drives except my Lite-on does .
I immediately went to the Asus site and found I had the latest (1.24) firmware and decided to crossflash to Pio 111L. I have done so and notice no difference in spead or readability. I also tried tp flash back to the original 1.24 and can’t now.
What is the reason for crossflashing to Pio drive and why is it so sloooow?
