I've got a Hitachi GD-5000 set as master on the 2ndary IDE channel. I recently put a Pioneer 108 as slave on it.
The read speed of the Hitachi while ripping DVDs is only 1.6x. I'm pretty sure it's rated as 8x. I don't remember it being this slow before. What should I look at? Driver? Firmware? I don't think there would be a driver, & I haven't found any firmware upgrades.

It's on an 80-pin cable, but I didn't think of checking the DMA. I'll try it when I get home. Thanks.

I checked the DMA setting & it was set to PIO only. I set it to DMA if available, but it says that the current mode is PIO only, & the read speed's still 1.6x. How do I get it to use DMA?
