Hi. Now I just installed my new NEC-3520A drive. Because I have a lot of things in my PC, I connected it to my Promise Ultra 133 TX2 IDE controller PCI card alone on first IDE connector as master. I use WinXP pro SP2 and all the latest drivers to my Asus P4PE MB. Now I have a problem: connected as described above the maximum write speed i x2 !!! When I switch and connect my NEC drive to the regular secondary IDE port, and still as master, the NEC drive writes full speed. In both cases reading is no problem (Rip lock patched firmware - 3520beta2.bin F/W), reading with maximum x14.
Can someone help me out with this problem, I’d love to have the NEC-drive connected to my Promise card.
Thanks in advance
