I've got a new NEC 3520aw DVD writer and am wondering where to begin. I've spent more than a few hours reading posts in the NEC forum, but have yet to find consistant step-by-step info.
I've downloaded a number of tools; CD/DVD speed, DVD Info, and Binflash as well as the firmware to update to current v3.04 (have looked at the rebadged but will wait till I'm more familiar).
The DVD-R is in it's bay (master of IDE 2 with a pullout harddrive as slave) and Windows XP SP2 recognizes it. Sony Vegas was included with my birthday present (haven't installed it yet), so I suppose I'm all set to burn.
Where would you begin? What steps should I take to test it out before I create a few DVD coasters?
I've got tons of experience creating CD coasters from an assortment of CD writers over the years, but have never tested the equipment first, nor have I tried tweaking.
Any and all advice appreciated.
