I now have a 1633S w/BS41 (black) and a 811S w/HS0R (white). Look funny in the case together
Anyway, after installing the 1633S today (already had 811S) my BIOS gave me an error that I do not have an 80-pin EIDE connector on my secondary channel which would be these two drives.
I thought nothing of it since both drives only use Ultra DMA 2 which can be accomplished through 40pin cables.
Now I'm burning a DVD using both recorders with the same TDK media (shows 8x write on both). During the burn process the Nero "Buffer Level" on each fluctuates like there's no tomorrow...it's almost scary...the Read Position also makes no sense...
All in all, it looks like it's all farked up...
What are the benefits of using multiple recorders? It took approx 14 minutes to burn 2 full length DVDs at 8x...is that good?
I just checked both burned DVDs and they seem to play fine...I guess the weird stuff in Nero is normal?
