Paranoia is then roughly a threefold hit on top of the drive's true extraction
speed (unless it starts getting into heavy error correction). So, I'd guess
that the drive's flat out DAE speed is actually more like 5-6x.
I just checked and it runs at 4x tops.

It probably just caches data on the hard drive. If you find out otherwise, I'd
like to know... However, a 10x speedup on top of 32x would be 320x and given
that your drive uses a single read head, that's not possible. A CD blows up
from centripetal force long before then (50-60x according to Philips research).
Well what I meant was that I was getting 2x (now 4x without error
corection) while some people claim up to 20x with 'blows98, hence ten
time faster. In anycase the drive seems to default to a low speed
unless told otherwise, but the force speed option doesn't help.
Thanx for any help!
I saw this post on the internet about teac's speed up program:
>Why my Teac 532S does DAE only x4?
>Thanks a lot,
You need bios version 3.0a and Teac's expansion utility. When you run
the expansion utility it creates a file called teac5324.ini in
\windows. You then have to edit the CD-DA= line so it looks like
Comment 532=532S/E CD-DA Speed=x4:4(Default),x16:16,x32:32
Comment 524=524EA CD-DA Speed=x4:4(Default),x16:16,x24:24
Also, when using the teac utility, to get your changes to take you
need to make sure you check the "change default" box and click on
"apply." If you don't do this you won't make any changes at all.
Why you have to do all this to get this drive to do proper DAE is
beyond me, but once I was done I got ~23x average DAE when measured by
CDSPEED99, and it's a great drive all around.
