I’ve just installed a 716A in my Dell Dimension 2400, in addition to the supplied CD-ROM, and the Sonic software (trial version) on the supplied CD.
I am yet to try burning audio or video as the primary purpose is to backup data and, like on my Dell laptop, I want to be able to drag-and-drop files. i.e. use DLA.
Having scanned a few posts, am I right in understanding that there are problems using DLA on this drive? I ask because I do not see the option in the drop-down menu for the drive, neither do I see a Format option, so how do I format CD-RW and DVD+RW?
Second question concerns the controller: this Dell has Intel 82801DB Ultra ATA Storage Controller and in another post someone says it must be SATA. Is that right? What should I do?
