After reading the document information, I decided not to try this. I don't ripping or burning of DVDs for it to be worthwhile for me. Besides, the DVD ripping that I do will most likely be done with my Asus E616-P3 instead. I haven't installed either one yet, but will be installing both drives this weekend.
Of course, the idea of maybe setting the DVD read speed to 12X instead of 16X as suggested in the document information is a tempting possibility so don't count me completely out yet.
