CD RW EXTREMELY slow read

Sony Optiarc 24x SATA AD-7280S-OEM
(No driver updates that I could find on the Sony site.)

Took 45 minutes to install Company of Heroes'tov last night!

When I try to check the POI or DMA, There is no listing in Device driver under IDE, that allows me to check. This is in win 7

What would be the options? Thanks

Welcome to SevenForums.

You wouldn't find it under IDE since your drive is SATA.

You could try updating your chipset drivers for the sata ports.

Windows supplies the drivers for your drive.

You could try clicking on the DV-CDrom in device manager>update driver software and let windows search for a better driver.

The other thing you can do is search the manufaturers site for a firmware update.

Also you need to get the "unkonw device" with the yellow exclimation point in device manger fixed.

Try clicking on it.properties.update driver sooftware.

If that doesn't work click on it> properties>details tab> drop down menu>select hardware id> copy and paste the id string and we'll see if we can find a driver for you.

Maybe the CD was recorded in a very low density.

The CD player is 2 day's old in a new build.

I will go try those ideas and see what I come up with.
Thanks!

You could try hooking up the drive to the non-Intel controller and setting the mode to IDE.
Hard drives and SSD's take advantage of AHCI, but having an optical drive on a controller with AHCI
enabled can degrade the performance of the optical drive.

I usually place my optical drives on the second controller and enable the IDE mode.

Not sure I know how to do that, find the "second controller", is that in bios?

How does the device perform in general with R/W operations to a CD or DVD. Try a drag & drop of some small and large files.
Is the device always slow?

USB\VID_0CF3&PID_3000

This is on the Hardware Ids "value"

Only things connected to my USB are keyboard,mouse and Belkin network adapter. I have the Graphite 600T case which has a front panel USB 3.0 that has to be routed to the rear of the MB, but I tried unplugging it.

As far as the cdrom, I searched, no driver/firmware updates. I even downloaded Microsofts update search utility. I also went on ASUS/support and downloaded the Jenkins (Ithink) drivers, nothing. I didnt download the "Marvell" since I'm not using those 2 6Dbs ports
