It might be an answer to the problems. But we will wait to hear the reports from the poster about playing with Elecard decoder.
AFAIK an UDMA drive can read data at a speed higher than 40MB/s without problems..

Normally, after the drive is checked, bad sectors are isolated and never reported existing. Just the drive capacity is lower than it was before.
Yeah, I know..I don't know why you asked it to me..
In regards to bad sectors I only wrote "the only problem from your drive is if it has bad sectors etc. " :?
