OK, so my 1300A likes Memorex and Ritek, hates Princo.
Now, onto DVD rom reading speeds
I have replaced my Toshiba SD-M1302 5X DVD-ROM drive with the 1300A. If I want it back, I need another IDE controller.
Which of these drives should be faster?
Because the Toshiba always seemed to read at almost 5X from the offset, but right now the 1300A has gone from 1X up to 4.5X and is at 55%.
If the 1300A is meant to be newer and faster and the like, it appears to be not. Not by a long shot. Something wrong maybe? I have no idea where the DMA settings moved to in XP from 98se…
