Two things: -
-see if you can set the drive to work in DMA mode: http://www.real-knowledge.com/dma.htm
- the firmware on the DVD rom should be a"master" one. Go online and look for some drive utilities that check for that, see if the manufacturer provides links for the firmware and upgrading options. Careful, playing with the firmware incorrectly can brick the drive.
