Hello people, I recently bought this scsi cd reader.
Unlucky it the seller didn't care about the package so I received it with several smash on the fron panel (some cracks).
Even the tray has a small crack.
I already sent a message to the seller claiming that I would have tested it.
Now I did.
The slow speed is very low, in a 80 min cd it it begins around 10x and then it decrease to 8x, but it's unable to read at more than 10x.
Also when I put a cd in it makes a weird noise like if it was spinning without cd and then there is an high pitch whistle.
According to the review it was much faster than this: https://www.cdrinfo.com/d7/content/plextor-ul … i-cd-rom?page=1
What could I do about it? I tried to open it and despite some dust everything seemed in order.
Just to be sure: the rest of the config it is beefy enough: Adaptec SCSI Card 29160 in a pentium 4 build with windows xp.
