I have a 3520A that I’ve used for years now and I have hacked firmware that allows me to burn DVD+R as DVD-ROM. I use this burner regularly to burn a specific disc that is played in a certain playback device that is VERY picky about media, burners and software. I’ve managed to get perfectly working copies of DL media with this burner for some time now but recently upgraded my PC and it’s all SATA so I don’t have IDE or LP4 plugs for my 3520A. The next drive doesn’t have to be a NEC either and it looks like there’s a Samsung that’s pretty popular these days. I was hoping someone could give me some ideas on best possible replacement for my perfectly functioning 3520A that was inexpensive and reliably burned DVD-ROM booktype.
Thanks for the help!
