    I Just got the latest Aopen 56 speed CD ROM drive to replace an aging 40 speed i have.

    Benchmarking on SiSoft the drive runs a max of 6 speed.
    I have no idea why. Its got a jumper on the back to enable/disable UDMA 33. This makes no diffrence to the speeds :(

    The old 40 speed & DVD & CDRW all hammer away near there top speeds but not this drive.

    Do i have a faulty one ?

    So far i have tried running this in all modes but nuttin :(.

    yeah, i'd try to get a replacement. can't think of any reason why that would happen.

    or stick with the 40x... that's fast enough, imo.

    just seen your post. SiSoft wanted a large file on a cd so i had to use an old 1 i had..


    I'm at work now and the CD runs fine. :(
