Merry Christmas everyone! And Greetings!
I've stumbled upon this forum as I'm in need of a fix for my newly aquired NEC3500AG DVD burner. This is what has me confused.. I look at the box and this drives claims to be 16x DVD-ROM. Yet for some odd reason when I go to extract/read a DVD any program I use only gets a 2x read speed. Now after some reading online I've seen alot of talk about "riplock", and how NEC did something with the max read speed so the drive wouldn't be as noisy. Well, I bought this drive to rip/read DVD's faster, not to be impressed with it's uber stealthness, lol.
Does anyone out there have any fixes for this? I'm sure I can't be the only one out there with this problem!
But to note, the drive burns fine @8x with Ritek DVD-R media.
