hello to all
i have my 2500a as a slave (i think - its below my CD drive on my Dell…i swapped out the regular CDRW drive for this) and have had it for 2 months now. I have not had one single error. I used DVD Shrink to rip and burn my DVD backups. Well, it used to take ~40min to rip, and ~15min to burn, all the while i could browse the web and do whatever without any problems.
Well, now it takes nearly 3 times as long to do everything, and it REALLY slows down my computer to the point where’s its impossible to do anything at times.
Someone suggested that the drive’s transfer and current transfer mode got changed to PIO mode…it seems it did. iwas advised to switch the transfer mode to Ultra DMA if available, unistall drive, unplug, and reinstallthe drive to no avail. it is still taking forever (but at least no errors). i have no idea what do to, and this is prett disconcerting. please, any help is appreciated
