    It seems to take forever to read CD Rom disks.

    It sort of whirrs for ages before anything actually happens. I've used a lens cleaner on it, but without improvement.

    Has anyone ever experienced this? Could it be a driver problem? I think the driver that it is using is a generic microsoft cdrom driver

    Could be the media your using , a loose or failing IDE cable or the Drive is just going Kaput . Have you tried to update the firmware ? I had a like problem last week , mine would n't read some disks or would n't always open so for 36.00 bucks CND I just replaced it . I tried all of the above first as I'm cheap .


    I'll never buy another Sony DVD -RW by the way , LG or LiteON .

    Firmware Update did the trick. Brilliant. Cheers peat

    It's NEC by the way. Pretty good (now it works properly)

    Thanks again!
