hi there everyone i am new here, i have just upgraded from a pioneer a03 to this liteon... it writes greats but ohh boy reading is a nightmare. the drive reads everything at a very slow speed... and if i copy a divx to the dvd and play it back it just jumps and stop and i could hear the drive spining up and slowing down. but when i put this in any older drives like the a03 or my sony laptop the drive reads the media fine. so i assume its not the media. at the moment i am running it on secondary master with no slave.
