hi, i went through the last few pages looking for a fix to this. i just bought a nec 3500A from newegg and the way they packaged it im afraid it was damaged, i installed it asap and tried burning a dvd. took around 45 mins to encode and about that long to burn at 4x (using 4x media).
anyhow the question is, in Nero burn wizard, it says max write speed (6x). this is with no media in the drive. with 4x media its 4x how do i get it to read 16x?
the secondary channel only has the nec drive and its set to ultra dma mode 2. if it matters in its description is (0:0) same as the HD, but HD is on a sata connection. (HD is running ultra dma mode 5) kinda worried it might be on the same channel.
im running XP sp 2 with 5.12535.0 Nec 3500AG drivers. using dvd shrink 3.2 and nero 6.601.
please dont suggest i just go out and buy some 16x media like all the other threads, because nero should acknowledge the drive being 16x without any media in the bay.
thanks in advance.
