    Right, I'm gonna order one I think this weekend. Lets hope it fares better than the plextor. Shame really, as it was absolutely lightning at burning CD-R's just not DVDs. Well, lets see how it goes!

    Cheers for all the advice

    If it burned CDs that suggests that the IDE driver was working fine. The problem was somewhere else, possibly a faulty drive? Unsupported media? Anyway, good luck with the 3500, I wouldn't swap mine for a Plextor.

    You want a 40 pin IDE cable for your optical devices. (40 pin for ATA33/66 devices and 80 pin for 100/133 devices)

    I personally have a Lite-On LDW-811s and use the nVidia IDE controller, no problems here.
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.
