I cant quite get up to 16x reading using dvd decrypter. My 3500 has hacked 2.18 riplock removed FW and i cant see why its not doing it. On a side note my Benq 1620 doesnt make it to 8x either on a DL disc with the same program.

I have a pretty hefty machine by average standards, so I cant see that being the issue for reading issues.

75 GB WD Raptor HD 10,000 RPM (not that it should matter for reading)
