With these drives you can read and record DVDs and/or CDs in all kinds of formats. Please note the difference between DVD+R and DVD-R when buying a DVD burner, often drives can write only to one of those two media types, sometimes to both. When you buy a drive that only supports one type, you will always have to be careful to choose the right writable DVD discs in the shop. Newer DVD drives also support writing to Dual Layer DVDs. This kind of discs have a storage capacity of 8.5 GB instead of the usual 4.7 GB. DVD (re)writers generally can read and write CDs also, but only some CD (re)writers can read DVDs.

Marketing text NEC DVD RW ND-3520

The official marketing text of NEC DVD RW ND-3520 as supplied by the manufacturer
Increases the RW speeds of the industry-leading 3500A

Supports minus dual layer recording as well as plus delivers 8.5Gb of capacity for digital recording, storace and PC back-up

The ND3520A is the second generation 16x DVD re-writer. The new model delivers both plus and minus* dual layer recording at 4x and improves on the RW functionality of its predecessor, the NEC ND3500A. It offers RW speeds of 8x for plus and 6x for minus to ensure superb performance across both formats.

Incorporating patented NEC technology, this latest device provides a high-speed, high capacity, reliable solution for a wide range of applications, from backing up MP3s and videos to storage for large PC data files. Because it supports all available DVD and CD formats it offers the ultimate flexibility, enabling users to select the media most appropriate to them without compromising on performance or capacity.

The new drive enables 1 hour of DVD Video to be recorded in just 6 minutes, and allows users to store up to 8.5 GB onto one DVD disc (or 700 Megabytes on a CD disc).

The ND-3520A incorporates NEC’s ‘high resolution writing strategy’ and ‘Active Optimized Power Control’ (Active OPC) to enhance the quality of written data. Active OPC dynamically monitors writing power and reflection of the media in use, calculating the optimum laser power and adjusting it in real-time, to overcome issues such as fingerprints on a disc.

The new device supports Windows 98SE, 2000, Me and XP and 2003 server. Windows NT 4.0 is also supported if the video editing function is not required.
