I "inherited" a Mad Dog 16XDVD9A4 drive (about a year old as far as I can tell). I figured it's an NEC drive but I'm a bit confused which model. Could someone confirm the exact model for this drive? TIA!
It's a NEC ND-3540A OEM drive.
Thanx for the info! According to the reviews, seems like a decent drive
It's my preferred device for scanning
Is it more accurate than a LiteOn burner (using CDspeed)? I noticed this drive gives a higher number of PIF errors on tha same media.
Both drives report the errors they actually see. Without professional equipment it's hard to tell which of them is more accurate. You just need to know how to interpret scans.
