I just bought the NEC ND 3520A drive, tested a moive rip using DVD Decrypter, using the stock fimware of 1.04. It took 35 minutes, with a transfer rate of around 2x to 3.7x being the highest.
I flashed the drive using the new modified firmware 1.UG, and rebooted. I tried the same movie again, and it went at the same speed, nothing had changed.
Also I thought the drive was suppose to be loud during the ripping process. I know I chose the NON quiet firmware flash. There were two options:
- LD3520 1.UF Quiet Firmware Package
- LD3520 1.UF Firmware Package
I chose option 2, no question about it.
What am I doing wrong or is it me?
