Problems with NEC3520a's buffer

vbimport

#1

Hi all,

I purchased a NEC 3520a in march. The qaulity of the burns are great, but I have a problem.

Whenever I am burning either a dvd or a CD, the Buffer goes all over the place. I use the drive mainly for burning Ritek g04 mini dvd-r’s. It should take about 5 minutes to burn a full mini dvd-r, but with the Buffer goes up and down, the burning pauses, and it takes close to 1/2 hour to complete the download. The same thing happens, when I am burning cd-r’s.

I don’t really know what info you guys will need to help me, but heres some one my computer:
AMD Athlon XP 2100+ 1.74GHz
Windows XP
512MB RAM
NEC 3520a, with Liggy and Dee 1.UF firmware.

I recently reformatted my hard drive, and re-installed windows XP, and I still have the same problem. While I am burning, I have no other programs running. I also have no Virus’s or adware/spyware.

Thanks for any help/suggestions you can give me,
Dave(xboxmodder999)

That’s just the way the drive works. I’ve noticed that it slows burns down as well, though not to a half hour for me.

The thing is, it works fine on another computer of mine. On the other computer, the buffer stays at 99% the whole time, and it only takes 4-5 minutes to burn the disc.
The other computer:
Windows XP
AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 2.08GHz
512MB RAM

Why does it work perfectly on that computer, but not on the one i mentioned in my first post?


#5

The only possibilities left, as the specs are so close, are Molex connection, IDE cable and power supply.


#6

Two more things come to mind:

  1. Check your DMA settings, the drive should be set to UDMA-2 mode.
  2. Which IDE drivers are you using?

In close relationship with point 2, it would be interesting to know if both your systems have the same chipset or not … and particularly which chipset you have on the system with the problem.

Well I’ll post mine up and see if that helps any.
I’m running

I have the NEC3520 as master on the secondary IDE with a Pioneer 109 as slave on the same channel. The Pioneer also has buffer fluctuation but not as bad as the NEC does. I’m using 80 wire cables, stock PSU with a max power output of 345W. All connections seem fine. The NEC is running UDMA Mode 2 and the Pioneer is running Mode 4. I’m also running standard Microsoft drivers for the IDE.

Gives you something to compare to at least.
