I just ordered two 2500's from Newegg,one black,one beige. The beige actually shows the bitsetting box in Nero 18.104.22.168 on the final burn screen, but the black 2500 in my box wont do it? Both have the official 1.07 firmware from NEC. I tried herries,several versions and mine doesnt change in Nero, why not?
Also do the 2500's make a low chirp sound when the dvd is accessed,mine seems to be louder than the beige drive,and it makes me paranoid,after giving up my Pioneer 106 for the NEC?
Beige NEC is on a box with
Ecs k7s5a, Athlon xp 1800,Seagate 40gb,XP SP1,set as master
Black NEC is on a box with
Asus p4c800,P42.6ghz,WD 80gb,XP SP1,set as master
