CD-ROM very slow
Posted on 1998-07-27
I have just upgraded my P150 to P2-300, and I am still using my old 8x CD-ROM (IDE). I also installed Win 98 (I was using 3.1 before). I noticed that my CD-ROM is now very slow, and from time to time, I get a blue screen saying that there is an error reading my CD-ROM. This error, however, is fixed simply by retrying.
I have also noticed that when I tried playing an audio CD with a CD player application, it plays for a second, pauses for a second, plays for another second, etc.
Does anyone know what may be wrong?
