Too bad they take away functionality while making improvements.
You might want to try it yourself and see if yours does the same thing to make sure it's not just me or some kind of problem on my end.
I have other drives that will still work so it's not a huge thing here but for some it might be.
It reads + media just fine, don't have any ram media to test with.

I removed the secondary controller and it seemed to be OK after that except for a BOD the first time I tried EAC again. I rebooted and it was OK and everything was still enabled so I tried it again. I would rip the tracks but no audio, then it stopped reading them at all again. Maybe it's just my MSI Mother board and this drive being funky but it did seem to work fine with the earliest firmware when I reinstalled it.
Luckily my Sony 500a seems to rip it just fine so go figure ?! I might be missing something but it's not working here anymore It still rips normal disks just fine so I'm not going to sweat it, just some info that might be usefull, maybe not
Dartman wrote:Well I wouldn't call it a problem I don't think it is a feature they advertised it just works for most people so I'd doubt they'd fix anything. I don't know how it got out of DMA mode, I don't know why it now refuses to rip things it did before. I haven't tried that disk since I first got the new DVD with the original firmware on it so I didn't know anything had changed. I just decided to check it again after reading this and I noticed mine doesn't anymore so far, could even be the version of XP I'm running I spose.
I think any info here is good, people here try their best to give help or veiwpoints that might apply or like that.
I'll play with it off and on and see if anything changes, but hey, at least that expensive 500a works so I still have any possibility covered and I bet nobody knew it would work, I never tried till now myself.
