I have recently purchased a ND-3520 and I am completely dissapointed with the burn and rip speeds. I have read the various threads and I have downloaded the Binflash GUI program to update the firmware but I can't find the actual bin file to update the firmware. I am obviously ignorant to the process and need a little guidance. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My burn speeds are as follows (I have tried the drive in several diff systems)
P4 1.8 system I have gotten 6x tops (once) 3x rip
P4 2.8 systen (775 chip, asus P5GD1-VM board, 1gig memory) 3x burn, 2x rip
The drive is going to live on the 2.8 system, just built it, and DMA2 is the speed it shows. The whole system is pathetic at best. It is much slower on a whole than my old 1.8 system and I have tried everything short of reloading XP pro SP2. I have tried DVD Decrypter, Roxio 7, and DVD2One. It takes almost an hour for DVD2One to do its thing on my new 2.8 system, as it only takes 30 min on my old one. If anyone can help me with any of my questions I would be forever in your debt. Thanks, and great forum!
