Hello all, I have read good things about the Nec, so I got it to replace my Liteon 411s. I have a few questions.
Ripping speed is 2.1x (beginning of rip) to 4.1x towards the end of rip. Now is this normal for the Nec 2500a? I have read some complaints here of same issue and people recommending the rip unlock firmware. I do have DMA enabled. I am using the 40 pinn IDE cable though. Should this have anything to do with it? I used the same 40 pinn IDE cable with LIteon 411s and it ripped at close to 12x speed.
I will be burning primarily +r media. I understand that Ritek may cause problems for nec 2500a. Now, if I only plan on using Ricohjpn 02 or CMC +R media, is using CopyToDVD or DVDdecrypter OK? I have read that RecordNow is the software to use but I would rather not spend money on new software if I can avoid it.
If the slow ripping speed is indeed the norm for Nec 2500a, I would get a seperate DVD-rom just for ripping. Any recommendation for one that is fast and good reader to be paired with NEC 2500a?
