Ite,

I recently purchased a Plextor Premium and i noticed that the read speed of my drive is not 52x. Why is this?

I use Win Xp Pro SP2 RC1

Anything else ya need feel free…

peace out :bigsmile:

52x is the theoretical maximum speed this drive can achieve. If it ever will get to this speed, it will only be in the most outer regions of a very good disc. If your read speeds are still fast (up to 48x or so), there’s absolutely nothing wrong with your device…


#3

For maximum reading speed, you have to enable “SpeedRead” from within Plextools … otherwise, your drive is limited to 48x CAV reading.


#4

It is 40x at the moment, i thoght it should at least be 48x??


#5

Without SpeedRead, reading speed is 40x, with SpeedRead, it is 52x.


#6

Yep. The same applies to the PX-712A drive. By default it reads at 40x, it can be unlocked to reach 48x. The Premium uses 40x by default and 52x when unlocked (as aviationwiz already mentioned).

Yeah, i enable speedread, everythings fine. Cheerz
peace out
