Hi Pinto2, Yes the 1640 has replaced my 811...? :doh: (I'm I leaveing a data trail? )
Okay h/w setup: XP sp2, epox 9npa+ ultra mb (with nivdia drivers, will try out standard dvrs) AMD 64 3800+, 1GB Geil ultra, ATI X850TX, 450 GB of HDD space, Toshiba SD-M 1402 DVD-ROM (excellent for ripping, untill now. The 1640 tears a hole in it's Ass!!! 15x Rip (with MCSE hack)) and last liton 52327s CDR-RW
All cooled with water (very quiet).
Okay the 1640 is on Slave at the moment, so I'll try that on Master and also I'll uninstall the nvidia ide drvs.
I'll let you know how I get on,
Cheers for the help
