Try using the latest drivers for your MB’s chipset if you have not done so already. Is your drive on separate IDE controller? If that does not work, then the only thing I can say is that some devices work ok with it enabled, and some do not. Join Date Nov Posts 2, When was last time it worked properly? This leads me to wonder if the B has a digital audio-out that is defective, or is purposely non-functional.

The drive does become a bit warm to the touch after continuous extended use, but well within normal ranges.

Unfortunately, we encountered serious problems with our test unit, to the best of our knowledge isolated to the drive’s head assembly. Kenwood Corporation’s fastest True-X drive, the 72X uses Zen Research’s now legendary 7-beam pickup to split the read laser into multiple beams, allowing the drive to read 7 tracks in parallel for somewhat P-CAV 72X performance across the majority of the disc.
All times are GMT Featuring an access time of 75ms, a kb buffer and a standard 1-year warranty, the Mitsumi appears on the surface to be a contender. Could be bum drive. However, all tests involving sequential transfers yielded very competitive performance. You may have to register before you can post: I’ll puzzle with you.
Can you put a bootable cd Win98, etc and set your bios to boot from cd first, then your other drives.
That may allow DMA to be enabled for that drive. But I repeat myself. Cd530e its heat levels do not come near matching its sound levels. While the 72X has what looks like a digital audio-out next to the standard analog out, it is not functional. Join Date Nov Posts 2, When was last time it worked properly? The drive is connected ceeative the motherboard on the secondary hdd connector. In my personal experience with Toshiba’s DVD-ROM drives, however, the digital connections worked properly despite not being mentioned in the spec sheets.
This frees up the CPU so that it can use its bandwidth to do other chores, and helps to speed up the system. I’d probably do the ms-dos thingy first.
CREATIVE 52Xmx CD-ROM DRIVE CD5230E (REFURBISHED)
If found, delete ALL instances and re-boot. The time now is Heat levels were moderate and entirely acceptable. Does the bootable cd actually boot in this configuration?? Its access time is rated at 85ms, with a kb buffer and cr5230e standard 1-year warranty.
This would tell you if also if drive good or bad. This caused the entire testbed case to shake not quite visibly, but definitely noticeable by placing your hand anywhere on the system case during drive operation. Unfortunately, however, it takes after the Creative unit in sound levels, matching it at full-RPM, whine-for-whine.
When was cd5203e time it worked properly? Considering this occurs during random access testing but not sequential transfer testing, this seems to cd5230s somehow related to how smoothly their head actuator mechanism tracks along the rails as it changes directions when seeking. At full-RPM, the drive was clearly audible not only over all other testbed system sounds, but over the sounds of my personal system next to it as well as an audio CD playing at moderate levels.
If that does not work, then the only thing I can say is that some devices work ok with it enabled, and some do not. Anything done just prior this prob?
Also impressive were its heat levels.
