Sorry! But if after executing echo current_speed:4>/proc/ide/hdX/settings
corresponded string is changed and you can see value 4 in this string therefore
driver perform an operation, if not - therefore it's bug and string with "currend_speed"
sould not be present in this file. If really speed is not changed then you should send
a bugreport to Linux developers;) The file /proc/ide/hdX/settings contains min and max
values for each operation and your value should be between min and max values.
Anyway it's right way too. And it works on my CDROM and it should work on any CDROM
which has speed >24x. (IMHO only since 24x CDROMs are able to change speed
dynamically - on the fly).

Best regards! Nick
