Here's the problem, any advice will be greatly appreciated.
1 - Whenever I watch a commercial dvd with the drive, all is fine, as long as I don't pause the playback. When I do pause, and let the drive spin down (after a few minutes), then un-pause, the drive refuses to read the dvd (various clicks and whirring).
2 - The drive reads and writes all media fine except for commerically pressed multi-region DVD's. Single region DVD's seem fine, and I don't encounter the problem in (1).
3 - I've tried flashing the drive to the latest firmware (3L14), and also used LtnRPC (v1.0.0) but no luck. I've also tried playing with various SATA options in the BIOS (Enhanced, Combined etc.), but nothing.
