Samsung SH-S202N reads slowly!



Hi there!

Recently i’ve bought a Samsung SH-S202N.
When I try to read Cds or DVDs, it’s very slowly and it takes me minutes to open a picture and often it crashes.
I’ve burned a DVD with pictures and when I use Nero CD/DVD Speed, it shows
red fields (errors).
But when I use my other drive, everything is fine, and it shows only green fields.
That means that it can burn, but not read.:eek:

Why is it so??


Hi and Welcome!

at first, please check if DMA is enabled:

Also, make sure, the drive is properly installed (jumper settings, cables) and the cables are not damaged.

Since some IDE controller drivers are trouble generators, please give us some more information about the IDE controller you have connected your drive to.
