first unit went for RMA so i got next one.But this is crappy too.As a reader works well but recording function works simply bad. From 3 dvd+rw discs only dates from verbatim can be coppied (but with difficulties-very slowly), from tdk i platinum it is impossible.Before i present some pictures i have mention that recorder is serial ata with firmware sb02 (newest i think).Next important info: info tool shows that recorder works NOT in dma ! I dont know how to enable dma for serial ata because in old ata"s it is simple(i can choose pio or dma mode) but in this example i dont have such a bracket in win xp (even).SO maybe someone can help me how to enable dma?
My config:win xp prof +sp2, asus p5b delux (without wifi),hdd seagata serial ata 320 gb, nv 7900gt,core 2 duo 6400 (not overclocked).
Hdd works as dma driver but dvd recorder not- i oryginally installed windows with other config: with dvd nec recorder on ata and old hdd on ata on j micron controller and this new hdd seagate on serial ata.After 2 months i sold 2 drivers on ata and i bought this samsung on serial ata.Maybe windows has problem with managing devices after such change?
