HI all. I've got a problem that's driviving me crazy and couldn't seem to find a previous answer for in your forums. I built a new system a few months ago with with a NEC 3500AG Drive as my main DVD Burner.
My system consist of: Soyo Dragon 2 main board (i865PE Chipset), P4 3.2 Prescott CPU, 1 Gig PC3200 Dual Channel DDR memory, Nvidia FX 5200 Video card, Maxtor 250 GB SATA Hard Drive (plugged into 1st SATA connector), Hauppauge WinTV250 TV Caputure Card, NEC 3500AG DVD_RW drive (master and only drive in Primary IDE channel), Maddog 8X DVD_RW (rebranded NEC 2500A? master and only drive in Secondary IDE Channel), Windows XP pro w/SP2, Nero Ultra 6.3
When I first started burning DVDs, 3500AG drive would burn TDK DVD+R 4X disk at 12X :). Unfortunatly I blew out my motherboard trying to get my firewire card to work :sad: I rebuilt the system using an Intel i865PERLL Mainboard and now the 3500AG only burns the same blanks at 4X speed
The Maddog drive was burning the 4X disk at 6x now only burns at 2.5x.
Is there something I missed doing in setting up my new board, or was I just lucky the first time around. Any help would be greatly appreciated
