AD-7170S Compatible?


I just bought a NEC AD-7170S today and I can’t wait to go home and install it.

But I have read that is incompatible with some motherboards. Mine is a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum. Does anyone have problems or anything?

Thank you

i’ve got 2 installed on a MSI K9N SLi-2F without any problems

what does this scan mean?
how is it possible? :eek: :eek:
(mb - MSI K9N Ultra 2F)

Where did you get it? I’ve been looking for a SATA burner in the US and can’t find one I am willing to buy…I hate Plextor and that’s the only one I’ve seen.

i whould think it works, i see you have 2 independant sata controllers then you might be lucky to have 2 diffrent controllers on you motherboard :slight_smile:
i have a Abit AT8 mb, that has uli sata, i have bought a pcie sil3132 2port so i chould fit in another hd and a dvd-rw, so it might be good to have 2 diffrent sata controller chipsets

lol, might be a buggy nero :bigsmile:
or it might be true, as sata is FASTER :bow:

there is a sata burner in us :clap:

PS, i just ordered mine today
the NEC AD-7170S that is

just installed 2X 7170s (SATA) in my dell 9150 no problems at all even made it region free (rpc2)

front and tray looks abit low grade unlike my sony GW120A



FYI, regioncode free would be rpc-1. :wink:

Yes made it rpc1 sorry my mistake

copied and burned a dvd in just under 20min


ps dvd-cloner 4 ver4.10 does not like this drive its up to 30min and still not completed

i have the drive now
