[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-7201S. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hello,
I have a problem with my AD-7201S. Sunday I installed Vista Home Premium 64 and this took me 23 hours (!). The DVD loaded for a couple of seconds and then the system stalled (the HDD light was on continuously when nothing happened). After ~10 minutes the DVD would load for a couple of seconds again and then the system stalled once more. The process went on with about 4% increase per hour. I just let the system run and install it at this terrible speed.
Once Vista was on the system all was fine and the system works very well. But the DVD still doesnâ€™t work like it should. When I inject a DVD and explore it, the system stalls again for ~10 minutes. The DVD then reads again for a couple of seconds, etc. For example, when trying to install Far Cry 2 from the DVD, the installer would progress a bit, then stall a bit, progress again, etc.
I think you understand this doesnâ€™t work. Taking 23 hours to install Vista almost drove me nuts (but I had no choice once the process started ).
So I wonder whether anyone of you could help me with this one.
