I just tried updating my firmware because my friend says his movies ripp a lot faster than mine. I went form 1.0d to 1.1a i believe and now i am getting a CRC error during the intial analysis. Could some one please give me a hand. I have made plenty of backups in the past and have never encountered this error ever before in the last year. The firmware update went smooth. i have also check to make sure the drive is setup for DMA. i have windows xp, 2.4ghz, 768mb ram.
