Just swapped out my ND-2510A for a ND-3520A. Drive is on Secondary Master with a Lite-On SOHW-832S as secondary slave. Using default Windows XP SP2 IDE drivers. My reason for the upgrade was that with the ND-2510A, I was not able to burn 2 CDRs at the same time using Nero. I could do this with other drives, in the same configuration, but no matter which computer I put the 2510A in, it would always give a “Write Error” or “Power Calibration Area” trying to burn two discs at once. I should be able to do this. It was my hope that the 3520A would remedy that problem.
Here are my issues:
I cannot flash the drive with The Dangerous Brothers Firmware. I double click on the windows executable and it never launches.
CDR speed seems to be limited to 32x. I am running Nero 6.6.03 and when I put a blank in the drive, Nero Info Tool tells me the max speed is 32x. Shouldn’t I be able to burn 48x. The Media I tried was Fuji (Taiyo Yuden) 48x and some cheaper Sony 48x discs.
All my CDR burns fail, regardless of the speed about half way through. I did not have this issue before.
I haven’t even tried to burn a DVD, or audio rip, or anything else I might use this drive for. Is this a lemon? Very frustrating. I should have stuck to the Lite-On’s.
