Nice idea. However, doesn't appear change drive speed with a DVD; only Audio CD. OSX Leopard v10.5.6, 2x Sony DVD RW DW-D150A.

Hi, would like to have support of the Pioneer Superdrive DVR-K06 Firmware Q617, which was delivered with my Mac Mini. Sadfully, there are no different Speeds detected.

The systempref pane doesn't seem to display properly on 10.4.11:

Thanks for reporting. Is DiscRotate functional on 10.4 though?

Does slowing the rotational speed down affect the read/write performance of my optical drive?

Yes it does, at the lowest setting your drive will be working at 1x transfer speed, in most cases that is enough for audio-cds or dvds. If you get lost frames in video, simply give it a bit more speed.
However, if you want to copy some files from a backup-dvd you should deactivate DiscRotate temporarily.

For even easier drive settings a menu status item will be featured in version 0.3

Works great on my MBP! Thanks for this, now I can listen to my CDs without copying them to computer first.
I have just one feature request.. A Menubar item (with some nice icon) to set the drive speed even easier.
Donation is on the way!

Oh my God - I've been waiting for this utility like forever. Can't wait to try it out - may be I can start using my Mac Mini to play CDs without having the Mini make more sound than the speakers. Great!
