Has anyone else seen this problem? My new NEC ND-3520 burns 8x discs at 8x, but reads pressed DL discs at only 2x! Device Mangler shows it set at UDMA 2 - which is lower than I think it should be - so it's at least not in PIO mode.

I have an Optorite DD0203 and a 3year old Asus E616 DVD-ROM drive that both read DL DVD's at 4x plus. I simply changed out the Optorite drive for the NEC drive to the same connector, etc.

Any idea what might be causing it to read dual-layer DVD's so slowly?

Seriously considering returning the drive and buying the Plextor 716A...

Thanks!

Edit: Forgot to mention: The secondary (Asus) drive in the chain reads UDMA Mode 5 in Device Manager, and that deleting the Secondary channel and restarting did no good.

If you apply a riplock hacked firmware, reading of DL media should boosted up to 7X
