Only the Kenwood was stealthier. But I repeat myself. Windows should re-detect your hardware. Windows will boot up and work ok as long as I don’t load a disk in the CD-rom drive. A bit of an enigma, the 52X unit is not even listed on Creative Labs’ website 48X is the highest speed drive they list , hence we cannot link you to any specifications. I’d shutdown and pull power and cable from drive, boot windows and see if any probs. Heat levels were moderate and entirely acceptable.

May need to restore a previous registry. I’d shutdown and pull power and cable from drive, boot windows and see if any probs. When was last time it worked properly? I have changed the data ribbon cable to no avail and checked the power supply cable.

When did it work? Because CD-ROM drives are seldom, if ever stressed as extensively and consistently as the access time loop I run the drives through when checking for noise and heat levels, it is highly unlikely that heat would ever be a concern during normal usage.

Vd5230e be bum drive. Kenwood Corporation’s fastest True-X drive, the 72X uses Zen Research’s now legendary 7-beam pickup to split the read laser into multiple beams, allowing the drive to read 7 tracks in parallel for somewhat P-CAV 72X performance across the majority of the disc.

If that does not work, then the only thing I can say is that some devices work ok with it enabled, and some do not. It may depend on the device’s built-in firmware. The drive does become a bit warm to the touch after continuous extended use, but well within normal ranges.

Does the bootable cd actually boot in this configuration?? You may have to register before you can post: I need help,the problem is my CD-rom drive,when I boot up and get to the windows desktop all is ok till I load up a cd disk,when I open the cd drive door and insert a cd disk and then close the door,the neon light starts blinking and I hear the cd drive running,as soon as the cx5230e loads up Windows freezes up and I can’t move the mouse,I also canot use the ctrl-alt-delete function,everything is froze up and I have to reboot the computer to get back into windows.

Although Mitsumi responded to our initial query in this matter, they dropped any further communication after our follow-up response to them.

While the 72X has what looks like a digital audio-out next to the standard analog out, it is not functional. An added benefit of this read method is a drastically reduced RPM, leading to much quieter operation.

This caused the entire testbed case to shake not quite visibly, but definitely noticeable by placing your hand anywhere on the vd5230e case during drive operation. The cd rom drive is a sound blaster -Creative-cde.

Also impressive were its heat levels. Anything done just prior this prob? Thanks Ski and to all you guys for the informationDel. All times are GMT Finally, it should be noted that the Mitsumi has a functional digital audio-out connector.

Only the Kenwood was stealthier. Technical specs were obtained from the installation guide that came with the drive. Glad to hear that the drive is working.

Fortunately its heat levels do not come near matching its sound levels. You’ll need to crank up your PC speakers to cf5230e drown out the sounds this drive makes when it’s in high gear.

A big plus goes to Creative for including a digital audio-out as well as the standard 4-pin analog audio-out. Kenwood specifies an access time of Despite the Kenwood’s quiet levels, there was a noticeable shaking during operation, which was isolated to random accesses. Unfortunately, however, it takes after the Creative unit in sound levels, matching it at full-RPM, whine-for-whine.
