One doubt!

Hi from Spain!!.I´m decided to buy the Nec ND-3500A, but there is one thing that make me doubt: I have read a lot of posts about the continuous writer buffer underruns while it´s burning (buffer level drops to 7% sometimes!!!).
My PC is some old and I´m afraid that those buffer dances affect the recording quality.If we assumes that the PC is in perfect conditions to record (DVD-Writer as master,DMA activated,HD defragmentated,…) then why has the DVD-writer those continuous and strong buffer movements or more properly speaking what can you say about this?.
Waiting your answer thank you very much!!!

This was told almost 100x … it’s because AOPC a feature of the burner that increases the burn quality on some crap discs as it slows the burning down if necessary and prevents a coaster.


AOPC is also detailed in the Mad Dog MD-16XDVD9 review.
Have a read :wink:

Wesociety: I skiped that part of the review… Now I know where should I refer others if they ask this question again :slight_smile:
