I just replaced my Sony DRU 500A with a NEC 3500… My Sony could write fine at 4x it never lagged in the buffer or nothing. But it was dying.
But this drive confuses me… I’ve spent hours reading the forums here now and i cant find a single thing that seems to solve my problem…
The drive lags when writing at 4x or above… it never reaches an avg. speed above 3.2x and the buffer hops up and down.
Does anyone have the ultimate solution to this?
Intel p4 presscott 3GHz
Asus P4C800 deluxe, newest bios
seagate 7200 drives in raid, no data probs.
I’ve tried burning in Nero and latest dvddecrypter and its the same.
The drive is master on MB primary channel. Shows UDMA-2 in properties.
I havent flashed it with a hacked firmware, because i find no one that speaks of solving this problem, and so i dont want to void it. Neither should i have to(?). :a
