Hi, I hope you can help. I have recently bought a new Athlon XP2800+ running Win XP (512MB) and it came with the Optorite DD0203 CD/R/DVD/R. The computer is running fine but I've had a few problems with the CD Drive.
Firstly I used the B's recorder GOLD 5 to try to extract some music from an audio CD (non protected). GOLD 5 froze after about 5 minutes and I had to 'End Task'.
Secondly I just used BurnAtOnce to try to rip a whole CD (again, non protected) and it took over 40 minutes to create a disk image, and then that froze too.
So yes, I'm having problems with it. Does anybody know why it would take 40 minutes to read a CD?
As I'm new to XP I have no idea how to alter DMA settings either. The DD0203 driver in Device Manager just says
Is that correct?
I have the new Firmware (2.16) for the drive and new versions of BurnAtOnce and Gold 5. I have the ASPI drivers bundled in XP Pro.
Any information would be appreciated.
