Hmm, I just got my drive today and decided to run some tests on it. These are the results. I think they look horrible. The drive is also louder than I expected. Any idea on how things can be so bad? Any comments would be appreciated. I am using Ritek DVD +R 8x for the test. It is burned and scanned using Nero CD DVD Speed.
I also attached images to show the DMA mode used. I am using a 80 wire IDE cable with blue, black and grey connectors too.
