Slow read speed

I got a Plextor 24-10-40 and flashed it to 1.02 in hopes that the drive reads Safedisc 1 and 2 disc quickly, but no it took almost half an hour to read both the disc for Red Alert 2 (SD2) and 20 minutes to read Age of Empires 2 Expansion (SD1). The Fast Error Skip Settings were:
Read retries:0
Error Correction:Software

I lowered the read speed to 32x when reading SD2 protected CD.

Here is part of my log:

:confused:

Get newest CloneCD, your FES settings are correct. Enable DMA and read speed MAX

Try that :slight_smile:

DMA is already enabled for my computer, but I was wondering if having Roxio installed will cause any conflict or problems?

I have Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.02c on my comp, no probs, also Nero Burning ROM 5.5.6.4, Padus DiscJuggler, CDRWIN 3.8F, CloneCD 3.3.2.1.

All work together well I think.

:cool: :cool: :cool:

Try changing the FES settings to:

Error correction: hardware (or none although none isn’t recommended by Olli)
Read retries: 0

And see how fast this goes.
