I have a NEC 3540a drive coming today and I have the following questions:
1) I'm wondering if I should flash to Liggy's 1.01e firmware or Dee's 1.W5 firmware. Most of the improvements I care about seem to be available in the 1.01e firmeware. Is the 1.W5 mainly a speed improvement? Is there any difference in burn quality between the firmware?
2) What is some good media for this drive? Many of the faqs say to ask in the drive forum but I couldn't find much info to this question. I'm in the US and Verbatim seems to be the best brand. Is there a specific line of Verbatim discs that is the best or a specific line to stay away from?
Sorry for a noob questions and thanks for any responses!
