I recently replaced my DVD burner with a Samsung SH-S182M LightScribe with a read speed of 12X or 21.6MB/sec. My actual read speed is less than 4MB/sec. Prior to replacing this burner my read speed was approx 10MB/sec with my old burner. I’m ripping the DVD movie to my HD. I’m not trying to rip and burn.
The burner is the slave drive on my secondary IDE channel. I have a CD-RW as the master drive on this channel. I don’t have any devices on my primary IDE channel. The system has two SATA drivers. The IDE channel is configured for Ultra DMA mode. I’m using DVDFab Platinum 3.1.5
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
