Hello
I've got a problem. See I got this comp back in july and built it with a friend. Anyways since about a month ago I noticed my DVD drive (LITE ON SOHW-1693S) slowed down in speed considerably while ripping an ISO from a disc, ever since then it became a pain. It wouldn't play some audio CDs, doesn't play DVDs and if I put a blank disk in it, it would freeze my comp. I honestly thought the problem was the drive since as you can tell is cheap and LITE ON is brand I heard a lot of people complain about. So I did what I thought would be the obvious thing to do and bought another drive (PLEXTOR PX-740A). So there I was thinking the problem would be eradicated by newly purchased drive only to find the problem persists. I think it can be a problemthe Motherboard but I am running out of ideas here I changed IDE ports and everything is the same. If someone has a good idea of what problem may be please let me know...
thank you.
Any comments or ideas will be highly appreciated.

DFI motherboards are among the best (if not, the best). I guess you could try the very latest nForce4 driver set from Guru3D.com and see if that makes a difference. Uninstall the older drivers first. If that doesn't work, then the issue may be solvable by updating the motherboard BIOS to the latest revision.

OK. I know I have the latest NForce drivers for my MoBo, Anyways. reformatting my hard drive seems like the solution huh?
thank you.
