I have just bought a Pioneer DVR-111BK (Firmware 1.29) and the IDE controller is set to UDMA 4.I have noticed that when ripping single layer DVD’s/DVD-+R’s with DVDDecrypter (I haven’t “Set read speed” and unchecked the “SpeedRead” option as its not a “Plextor” of course) and the ripping speed reaches around 12x + the drive slows down the read speed to about 5x and this is with DVD’s that have no defects/scratches ect…This has also happened with my BenQ DW-1650 on a different PC with a Intel chipset .If I re-rip again usually the speed reaches its max without any rip speed drops. I have a ATA133 capable HDD and the motherboard supports this speed.UDMA6 is enabled for my Primary Master eg HDD,drive is defragged.The jumper for the Pio is set to Master and my LG slave.
Does anyone else have this happen? The Pio seems to work just fine for DL media and CD’s.
Btw I use the ElbyCDIO interface option.Could this be the cause,should I change to SPTI or maybe the “quiet drive feature” built in is causing it?
Thanks for any help.I really would like an explanation from Pio 111 users or anyone with this problem.
No,SPTI dont make any difference.
