I am not able to rip or burn on my NEC 3520 in a Plumax PM-525C2-PPB enclosure. It is connected to my Toshiba S206 (2.8 ghz P4 1024ram)laptop via USB 2.0.
THe toshiba dvd rom will analyze a movie at up to 3500kbps. When I try to analyze a disk on the nec, using shrink, it usually is between 40 kbps and 170kbps. Once it reaches 1% I get an error that says "failed to read drive E"" read failed because the sector is encrypted- copy protection error". But the same disk is analyzed and ripped just fine by shrink in my toshiba dvd rom. The read speed tests wont work with nero either. I get an I/o error or it starts and then just gets stuck at 1%.
I tried to use dvd decryptor to burn, but I get a "semaphore timeout" . I tried using dvd express in nero, and nero dvd burning rom. None will work. All the programs will get to a lead in or about 1% or 2% and then stop.
I used forceaspi and nero said they were installed correctly.(was this neccessary?)
I also uininstalled SP2.
Ive included the nero info tool info page about my comp. At the bottom of the nero info tool it says that I don't have some of the os patches installed - could this matter? I have sp1 and dont get why those wouldnt be on their because they were included with sp1.
Any ideas why it wont work?
