The title says it all… New NEC 3520A Buffer up and down at any speed…
I replaced a 2500 with this 3520A. The buffer on the 2500 never fluctuated more than 2-3 percent. The buffer on this 3520 is up and down at least 6 times on a full burn of 4.3gb at any speed, even 4x. The PC is plenty fast as are the drives and I defrag’d the drive prior to testing. Theres no software running that could be probing the hard drive. Scanning the disc with DVDInfoPro shows no errors on the disc. Is my drive defective ??? Is all the buffer activity normal on this drive ???
