Nope didnt work. I tested speed again. Its at 0.26Mb/s so slow, lol.
If I buy a USB Adaptor do you think I might be able to get 1.5Mb/s again? coz last time I tried with my friends old USB adaptor the speed was at 0.5Kb/s
If I can get the speed back with a USB adaptor, I can finally put back my tv tuner... had to remove it because the graphics card I bought was like massive and it occupied the PCI slot next to it... (shouldnt of gotten a Micro ATX board)

Yeah we use Linksys adapters here which work great on Win7. I saw one yesterday on NewEgg for $19.99. Be sure to look at their webpage before you buy to check Win7 compat.

When you get it, plug it in, put the CD in the drive and browse to the CD from the Device Manager and it will pluck the driver. No software needed.

PCI adaptors? or USB?
Can a USB adaptor get speeds like a PCI adaptor?

Ok, 1 more question.
My friend gave me a couple of blu rays from the US, and since they are different region than Australia program I use Power DVD 8 only lets me change my region 5 times before it sets the last one as default. Is there a way I can make it play any region?

Not possible unless you flash the drive & that's extremely risky.

That's irrelevant, DVD/BR drives are hard coded to only change the region a certain mount of time (mine is 5), it doesn't matter if you reinstall Windows, the region changes will still be remembered, the only way of getting around this (i have looked for myself as i'm now at my limit) is to flash the drive with someone's 3rd party solution, which as i said is extremely risky, will no doubt invalidate your warranty, will make it harder to get support if things do go wrong, and more than likely would end up being an expensive mistake.
I suggest you forget about it, (I have!)
