Pio 112L - Slow Reads

Recommended Posts

I am getting very slow reads with Pioneer DVR-112L. I uninstalled the IDE controller by following the guide and allowed windows to find everything again. Also everything is in DMA mode.

 

Here is a log of my last attempted read. For comparisons my LiteOn is working fine when reading. I am using the Buffalo firmware 8.25 that I believe is just modified for bitsetting, as Nero shows my burns on +R media as dvd-rom.

 

Is this a problem with RPC1 or needing the speed patch enabled?

I tried this, but could not get it to work. Is that the only problem the riplock? I will just continue to use my LiteOn for ripping/reading, because I am getting very good burns with the Pioneer the way it is.

Maybe the drive is having trouble reading from the dodgy media...or is the case no matter what is being read, commercial and/or your own compilations from various brands.

I have the same problem with Pio-112D, although I already crossflashed it to Pio-112 with riplock+RPC I+bitsetting:

I don't have DVDinfo installed and have disabled graph export in ImgBurn too.

I'll create a backup for roll back ...

 

Stay tuned

1. Drive had read weakness straight from the beginning (only DVD not CD), I first used it for 2 weeks as 112D with FW 1.24 RPCII

2. Filters are clean:

4. Reading is also OK on other drives (even a bloody MATSHITA notebook slim drive is faster!)

No, my graph looks pretty useless, the scaling is wrong, I burned 4.2 GB data not 1 GB and DVDInfoPro can't obviously handle windooze large fonts.

What are the buffers doing during the verify stage?

 

Is it the same if you do a transfer rate test in CDSpeed? (i.e. really slow and dodgy looking graph)

I did a discovery test with CD-RW (Verbatim 32x) before and it looks OK.

DVD might be different to CD though.

 

I guess it needs to be a 8x DVD+RW / 6x DVD-RW to be a fair test (assuming you don't want to waste a WORM disc on it).

Burn speed reduction to 8x does not help either:

Oops, now I'm completely confused:

 

1.) Pio-112 setup as single drive (cable select) on its ATA-channel and burning data @16x (tested already another UDMA cable weeks ago):

So basically anything that also involves reading from the hdd appears to kill it. It would therefore make sense that the buffer bar must be dropping off from 100% when it starts to die. That should be pretty obvious if you keep an eye on it.

 

Personally, I keep well clear of 'Cable Select', it's evil!

 

When burning data, are your hdd's sata or just on the other ide channel?

Only things I have ever run @ cable select were my xboxes.

 

Pio drives seem to like Master on 80 wire.

 

Cable Select is something Dell seem to like doing and Hell soon follows (avoid cable select)

 

Evil it is.

Only problem with that is if you have an EMachine build, then cable-select is your only option. a couple years back I tried to make the system compliant with the whole master/slave thingy and had to have the service tech come out to my home to fix the system. >_<

OK, I found it!

 

But lets do it step by step:

Cable select is a reliable mode if you have proper hardware. Usually Intel chipsets have no problem with cable select and my chipset in this case is Intel 865PE.

I have also done over 200 DVDs with this rock solid machine and the Pio-111 (of course set as cable select and slave on 2nd ATA) like a clockwork with burn/verify times always @6:15/6:30.

This should be proof enough.

 

But there is a difference in my setup now:

I did nearly all burns with the Pio-111 from an external IEEE1394 drive (Icybox 350 + Maxtor 6Y160P0). Last year I added a Seagate ST3500630A (500 GB) as slave on 1st ATA and this is my current data source. Newer and larger HDDs are usually always faster so I never thought about it.

 

Here is the read speed log from my IEEE1394 drive using ImgBurn as benchmark

Looking into the DISCOVERY log the the read time for a full DVD5 is now 4:53 (it was 6:30 for Pio-111) so I increased ImgBurn's buffer from 20MB to 40MB and did the burn with IEEE1394 drive as source
