HI

I have a NEC3520a DVD burned and until recently it burned discs at 16x but now whenever i try and burn a disc the max speed it says is 2x. I also have a NEC 4551a which works fine and burns 16x so i know that the discs are ok to burn 16x.

I have not flashed the drive as i am not completely sure how to do this.

The only thing that i have done to the machine recently is to add a new sata Hard drive and it works great.

It is not a great problem as i can burn to the 4551 but would be good to have the choice as i had before.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you check the DMA settings? (Start > right-click "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager > Click the "+" sign next to IDE ... to expand it, then right click which channel the Nec 3520 (if you don't know check both) and select properties > Advanced Settings and make sure the transfer mode is set to 'DMA...". Hope this helps

Not sure how to get the DMA settings.

On the device management the only IDE is in the picture attachemt. i have had a look on these and cannot see any DMA setting.

The 2nd attachment is the only setting i could see related to DMA.

I thought it might be but was not sure. i have had it for a year and half so that is a while.

hopefully a new one will be quite cheap now.
