My Asus CD-S500/A (V 1.4C) CD-ROM drive often spins too fast for comfort, resulting in files/discs not being read properly. I understand that the firmware on this drive cannot be changed, but I am looking for a permanent way of decreasing the drive's read rate so that it generates fewer errors. I've tried the Asus CDSpeed and Nero DriveSpeed utilities, but I hate the fact that I have to configure these utilities every time I insert a disc into the drive. Are there other tools that I could use?
Any help or insight would be most appreciated.
