Hello phil2234, welcome to CDF :slight_smile:

See the link in my signature (“How to check/enable DMA”), and make sure UDMA Mode is enabled for all your drives.

wany, did you try updating Sony firmware before cross flash? That’s what I’d have tried first. Recently I read a thread here where user cross flashed a Memorex drive to 20A3P and eventually flashed back to original drive firmware due to problems after cross flash to LiteOn. I and others have corss flashed LiteOn drives to Sony with no problems posted yet, but I’ve seen a number pf problems posted for cross flash Sony or Memorex to LiteOn for what ever reason.
