Newly installed 40X CD-ROM has to "spinup" each time before it will access a file or open a folder.If I'm exploring and I click on a folder (to open it) there is a delay as the device spins up to speed.It will stay at speed for a few moments then drop down again. File x-fer rate is OK.(50meg file in 23 sec.)I expect that this drive is supposed to access files without having to spinup to Max. speed.
My old 4X drive accessed files much faster.
setup: IDE secondary slave
CD-ROM: EPO CR-840S (sold under Newcom brand)
