Ever since installing my NEC 2500A, I’ve been unable to use my Matshita DVD-ROM. At first I thought it was just DVD+RW discs the Matshita had a problem reading (and was advised to adjust the booktype) but it’s every disc. The drive is SLOW.
Studio pressed DVDs, audio CDs, PC software, CD-RW discs… when I put them in the drive, it takes the computer about a minute to read them. In the interim, the computer basically freezes. Then, I hear a whirring and the disc is read and I’m able to use the computer again. But accessing the disc, such as using Explorer to open a file, makes the computer freeze for another minute.
I’ve tried updating the firmware for the drive. It had no effect. The NEC is Secondary Master. The Matshita is Secondary Slave.
I’d like to be able to use my DVD-ROM again. Any advice?
