Thanx everyone for the replies
acko you mean to test the NEC burst rate? How is that done? Do you know how to test the hard drives speed also? I beleive the the hard drives are the problem
Braxas I'm using an MSI k7t turbo mobo (VIA KT133A chipset) with AthlonXP 1800+!!! When I had the optical drives connected at secondary, the NEC was stuck at Multiword DMA 2, but when I switched the to primary, the NEC was UDMA mode 2
I believe that That's is not fake TY (but I'll check later the codes in the inner circle when I get home). The funny thing is tha when I switched the optical drives to primary and the NEC was at UDMA mode 2, the first 2-3 burns were perfect @16x, with burning time @5min58sec!!!!! Later on, the Nec...just got lazy....
The optical drives are on the same cable (NEC primary Pionner secondary) and the hard drives on the other cable (2xSeagate 80Gb)
