It’s very interesting for me - what it the Creative 32x/12x/40x (RW3260E) really? Current firmware version is E110, 2002.03.01. Buffer size - 8 Mb. Front panel is like a Ricoh (or Plextor maybe), but I can’t find analogs for speed and buffer size.

Didn’t see anything about it at Creative’s site, which one of these is the culprit?

Suspect #1 Plexy Audiohoff

Suspect #2 Ricoh

Take notice of the design on top of the drive and the location of the LED, should help you pick it out. Both Plex and Ricoh offer 8MB buffers.

It’s like not this Ricoh photo, something like this Plextor. But more like an other Ricoh model -

And the drive has Just Link and JustSpeed, so I think it’s Ricoh hardware. But I can’t find any 32/12/40 model at Ricoh site.

Isn’t Justlink indicitive of an AOpen?

The Ricoh I posted was the only 32x model they had. It still looks a lot like the pic I posted, just different button and that line on the bezel, pretty easy change for Creative to do.

JustLink - so that drive is not the Plextor, imho. And JustSpeed is the Ricoh’s technology.

But they had 32/10/40 model with 8 Mb buffer, not the 32/12/40. It’s strange.
