I am running Win 2000 on an XP2000 with 256mb RAM and was suffering from slow burning speeds on my Lite-on LTR 52327s and slow DVD ripping speeds on my LG GDR 8161B.
In both cases it was buffer under runs or overflows as the main cause. Both of these problems were fixed by switching from PIO to DMA mode on both devices.
This had no drawbacks for the LG drive but all the while the Lite-on drive remains in DMA mode it refuses to read any EXE, RAR or AVI files etc, claiming them to be corrupt, damaged or "not a Win32 Application". Simple files like TXT may still be read however. If swiched back to PIO the drive works correctly at the expence of writing speeds.
Both drives are wired on the same Secondary IDE Channel
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
