I use Nero 6 (full Nero Burning ROM) and one machine will burn to multiple drives, using an NEC 3500 and a Lite-On 1693. The other machine simply will NOT burn to a 3500 and a 3540 successfully. Even tried using a seperate Promise ATA/133 card to keep both drives as masters on independant channels. The hard disk is plenty fast as is the machine. I suspect that those two drives just don’t like one another or something. I’ve searached and searched here before trying to find answeres, but never found anything that really helped.
Maybe I should just start a thread on it and see what people say. The searches I’ve done seem to turn up as much misinformation as anything else. (Or perhaps the info is accurate, but doesn’t apply to me.) One thing is, it’s said that you have to have the exact same drives running the exact same firmware. Not true. My 3500 and 1693 burn both CD and DVD at the same time without a hitch.
