Does anybody knows if the NEC ND-3520 does a correct EFM?

Every CD-writer use the Eight-to-fourteen-modulation (EFM). If you want to know how the NEC works with SD2-protection then read the review from Cdrinfo.com ;)

Even if a drive does do EFM, it doesn't do much good with the latest copy protections.

Mostly due to companies cracking down on drive manufacturers making their drives a little TOO good.

Is you want to copy discs, buy a Plextor Premium drive :wink:

Nope according to the cdrinfo review that is.
Which can be found at www.cdrinfo.com.

Ohyeah it seems they got some profesional tester working for cd-r's.
However with the current lay-out it would take you quite some time to see how the dvd writing quality is. Since no tables. Large ammount of media combined with a very sloppy lay-out.
In other words to much time consumeing for me and to complicated for the average joe which means that only people without a live. (hmm are you there Dolphinius Rex. :lol: ) might actually read the whole thing.
