Is the NEC drive picky about being master or slave?
I have two drives: Plextor 52x (non premium) and a NEC 3520A. I noticed that the IDE light shows when the NEC drive is in activity, when only the Hard Drive should be making that LED light up. Does that happen to anyone of you? Also my system slows down a lot when burning DVDs. I think that the UDMA might not be working correctly although Win XP reports a correct DMA configuration (shrug).
I have them both in the second IDE, the Plextor is master and the NEC is slave. Is the NEC picky about it? I know that the Plextor doesn’t want to be slave, but I didn’t know that the NEC could be picky too.
Although maybe I need a new flash for my motherboard. ASUS nForce 2 Deluxe. I’m with 1.04 for overclocking but if necesary I’ll upgrade to 1.08 even if it means worse overclocking
I’m using 1.UA firmware on my NEC.
