    Well I can't agree totally with that

    Aopen IDE DVD-ROM model 1648AH read speeds are the worst i have ever seen

    however, i got an ACER 40x20x10 IDE-CD-RW drive and I could not be happier with it, i get constant 20x records, never had a coaster even without using buffer underun system, so i guess Acer are ok,

    Well, the most recent Acer hardware I have come in contact with are their 52X - CD-Rom's... A friend I have come to know recently, had just bought three of the drives brand new. One for for himself, his family, and his girlfriend. And within about three months, (in computers that are barely used) the drives would randomly spin up and rattle, for minutes at a time. And if there was a cd in the drive, anything you were trying to do took far longer than it should take, because during the process, it would stop and then try to start again, making a reving sound. Rev ... pause... rev... pause... One of the drives even would randomly open one inch completely by it self.

    Apart from that, I have a friend who once bought an Acer from Best Buy, and the thing was nothing but problems the entire time he had it. And he was very computer-competent.

    Those are my experiences with the company... So yea, maybe Acer makes a good item once in a while, its pretty hard not to, but at least with the experiences I've had, I'm staying away from them. shrug

    ok, so i got the origonal 9100 .bin

    but now:

    It seems to be the right file, but I can't burn anything at all now. Nero, CloneCD, and NTI all freeze up. I have to restart the pc to quit the app.
    With nero, it gets the "scanning SCS/IDE bus" and freezes. With CCD, it loads the app's screen, then freezes, and with NTI, it loads everything fine, but freezes when a blank cd is put in.

    drive works fine as a plain cdrom

    Ideas?

    Anyone?!


    :rolleyes2
