Is it just my nd-3550a or are all nd-3550a loud when playing movies? Can someone verify? I am not sure about the acoustic during the burning but this drive was loudest I have ever experienced during the playing..Do you think my drive's detective?
They are not. Most likely you have flashed it with an patched firmware. Yes?!
Yes, I did update the patch to latest 1.06. Is this the problem?I am satisifed with its burning capability but when playing it is just too loud.Comparing to LiteOn this is running like a turbo engine. Unbearable loud for me.
If this is way it goes, I wouldn't recommend to anyone wanting a single drive for both burning and reading. Nec drive is just too loud to be an acceptable reader.
Thank God, I am only using this as writer as I have LiteOn reader which is much much quieter when reading.
I wouldn't use a recorder/burner for playback things.
DVD-ROM drives have faster access times and should be used, if necessary.
Or maybe you would like to check out some patched firmwares...
Thanks for your confirmation. I just wanted to make sure my drive is not defective. I wasn't sure why people said this is quiet drive. I guess they meant when they burn the DVDs, not while playing...
