I’ve upgraded my 1200A to a 3500A (when it arrives…)
A few questions:
Will I need to change any OS settings for XP Pro to recognise the change of drive? (I once had to reinstall Nero for it to recognise a new drive)
The 1200A is currently Secondary Slave and I’ve never had any problems ripping or burning. Is there any benefit in moving it to Master?
I mainly use DVDShrink to rip. I am unclear as to whether I really need AnyDVD or not. Will DVDShrink still rip a CSS disk if I uninstall AnyDVD?
What version of reliable firmware should I be looking at to remove RPC, RIP Speed, and possibly overclocked burning on certain medias?
Do I need to change the Burn speed in Nero or DVDShrink to get the most out of the new drive, or is Nero good at automatically determining the best speed?
Thanks for any advice, and perhaps suggestions of things I can do differently. As you can guess, I’m fairly new, and trying to do this without having to buy licensed s/w (except Nero of course)
