Default Slow BD Playing and Ripping with two different drives

So I've been using a Pioneer external BD player for months now and it's work fine, both playing and ripping discs. No issues. But then last week, after a Windows update, it wouldn't read at anything above 0.3x speed. Playback is choppy as hell and ripping is at a crawl at 0.0x at times. I figured the drive had crapped out, so I bought a ASUS BW-16D1X, but I'm getting the same problems. My USB ports are fine. Drivers updated. Firmware updated on both BD drives. DVD's read rates are fine. Any ideas?

Are they getting enough power or going to sleep?

The Asus is power by the AC outlet. The Pioneer is powered by USB 3.0, but haven't had any issues with the device beforehand or with any other devices on those USB's.

I've heard a few folks having similar issues, the PC thinks the device is inactive so it drops read/write rates.

Might be worth trying a non USB 3.0 connection and/or a USB stick to see if you're still getting expected transfer rates.
