I got my burner yesterday, installed it internally, flashed with OEM V107 firmware, and checked speed using DVDInfoPro. Everything looked good.
Did not burn, but then removed the DVD drive and put it into my external USB 2.0/Firewire drive enclosure.
Firewire seemed to be locking up using DVDdecrypter, so I switched over to USB.
Decrypted and burned Disk 6 of Jeremiah - Season 1 for a test, and all worked well. Took 10 minutes approximately to burn the ISO image (3.9 GB).
My question is this:
Does the type of connection (IDE internal, USB, Firewire) make any difference on speed of rip/burn?
Also, as a newbie to flashing firmware, can I flash the firmware of the ND-2500A while it is not internally installed to my computer? as from USB??
