I've just been given a Dell ND1100A which I understand is a 4x DVD+RW drive.
I've seen hacks here, although I'm not sure which of the two to use (do both make it a 1300?):
But am not sure what the chances are of this working with a Dell OEM drive (I don't know what the servo version is yet until I get a DOS boot floppy setup).
Anyone have any success stories - especially working with Linux?
I'm mostly interested in getting 4x DVD-R to work (I don't have any +R's, my main drive is a Pioneer 105) and RPC1.
Would it be better to just stick to DVD+R and get a RPC1 firmware for the 1100A or go for DVD-R and RPC1 @ 1300?
