after about 600 backups and maybe 100 playbacks within 7 months, i think my Nec ND-6500A has bit the dust.
it only reads at 10x and writes 24x (using Nero Infotool). w/o a disk in the drive, it says 24x read.
DVD shrink used to be 35 mins, now it’s 95 mins and i can’t use other programs like i used to.
only thing i did before this happened was to install a game (Splinter Cell).
