Problems reading a W25Q64FVAIG (W25Q64.V)

I got a buspirat and I'm trying to read a BIOS chip W25Q64FVAIG (W25Q64.V) with the Flashrom tool, it detects the chip but the read seams to take forever and does not finishes.
my command line is ./flashrom --programmer buspirate_spi:dev=/dev/ttyUSB0,spispeed=1M -r ~/winbond.bin

it says
Calibrating delay loop... OS timer resolution is 1 usecs, 3973M loops per second, 10 myus = 10 us, 100 myus = 105 us, 1000 myus = 996 us, 10000 myus = 9983 us, 4 myus = 4 us, OK.
Initializing buspirate_spi programmer
Baud rate is 115200 now.
Detected Bus Pirate hardware v3.5
Detected Bus Pirate firmware 6.1
Using SPI command set v2.
SPI speed is 1MHz
Raw bitbang mode version 1
Raw SPI mode version 1
...
Found Winbond flash chip "W25Q64.V" (8192 kB, SPI).
Reading flash...

and thats that, what am I doing wrong?


EDIT: Ok forget it, it worked, it just took forever....
