I just bought an NEC 3500 which is going to replace an existing CD burner on a Windows XP home system. I’ve downloaded the user manual and I contacted NEC support but I’m not confident in their reply. I want to make sure I install this correctly so as to reduce future posts. I’ve compared the cables on the CD writer to the posts on the 3500 and they appear to be interchangable. My questions:
I have the 4 pin black red and white audio cable but right next to it is a 2 pin connection that says “Digital Out”. NEC says I don’t have to worry about this but I want to double check.
If I do need one, the only available connection that I can see on the sound card is a 4 pin: would this be a problem?
I have software that the company included with the burner but I bought the drive bare bones, (not retail). It’s Nero 6 suite 1 OEM version. Is this going to be adequate? I’m converting VHS and also recording TV (I’ve got Win TV radio). Should I get Nero 6 suite 3?
Thanks a bunch!!!
