Bought emprex from Fry’s for $80 (no MIR) on Thanks givings…
Not impressed with the contents (doesn’t even have an IDE cable) … documentation was bare minimum.
Impressed with Software package (Roxio CD/DVD creator 6, power dvd, roxio photosuite etc.) Although liked Roxio 5 better than 6 (may be too early to comment on that)
Installed the drive two days back. Successfully burnt CDS although speed doesn’t go over 32x. That probably my cheap CDRs. Burnt DVD too (backed up one movie using dvdxcopy) … actually was little surprized how fast it went through.
Overall … so far so good.
Questions to the freaks …
- How do you find MID CODE (what is MODCODE)?
- As things are going well for me till now … do u think I should go and update the f/w?
- Does it matter if I put it on IDE master or slave? Right now it’s only device on the Secondary IDE. I am thinking about moving it to another newer machine that I have and install it with another DVD ROM (which is most probably in IDE-Master)?
Thanks in advance …
