25. Conclusion

When we received our ND-4550A burner from NEC, it had already been released onto the market a couple of months. We therefore decided to wait a little longer for the release of the new firmware for the burner, version 1.07. We are now ready to test the very popular NEC ND-4550A burner.

The RPC II region control is used, allowing the user to change the drive's region no more than five times.

- Retail Package

Previous burners that we have received from NEC came in the bulk package. This time round, we received a retail version that includes:

  • the white blazed NEC ND-4550A internal tray load mechanism burner
  • an E-IDE (ATAPI) cable
  • an Audio cable
  • mounting screws
  • a CD-ROM that includes documentation for the drive as well as a bundled version of Nero Express 6, Nero Vision Express 3, Nero Showtime 2, and a wide collection of Nero Utilities

These days, most of the retail packages that we receive do not include any blank media... and... NEC is not an exception here. :p

- The Drive

The front panel is no different to any other recent NEC drive such as the ND-4551A, with a typical NEC design. On the rear panel you will find the analogue and digital audio outputs (SPDIF), the IDE master/slave/cs selector pins, the IDE connector and the power input.

We do not recommend removing the drive's cover, since this will void the manufacturer's warranty. But you can take a look inside the drive with the pictures below. Click on the image for a larger, more detailed photograph.

The chipset is NEC's 'D6364', the same one that is used in the previous ND 3540 model as well as the latest ND-4551A burner. The specific chipset will also be found in Pioneer's latest burners, the DVR-110 and DVR-110D.

- Installation

The drive came installed with firmware version 1.06. We upgraded it to version 1.07. The drive was identified as the 'NEC DVD_RW ND-4550A' under WinXP. Below is a screenshot of Nero Burning Rom's specs for the drive.

In order to compare the performance of the ND-4550A, we provide the results of two other latest release burners, the BenQ DW-1655 and Plextor PX-755A.

Windows device driver information for ARECA (X86-32-STORPORT) SATA RAID Host Adapter

Scsi Controller Driver

ARECA SATA RAID is a SCSI host adapter. SCSI adapters are used in attaching one or more SCSI devices onto a computer bus. To some, it is also regarded as the SCSI controller. This is since the term also connotes a device that consists of all SCSI devices. To differentiate host controllers from other devices, there is a difference in directing the process of transferring data between the SCSI bus and the computer's input or output bus. A few good examples are CD ROMs and hard discs. Newly produced SCSI adapters are in thirty bit or sixty four bit PCI cards which are higher than the initially manufactured devices that are only sixteen bit ISA bus or transitional 32-bit VESA and EISA buses. PCI cards enable the user to connect components onto the computer's processor. Users can also see these connections amongst other computer hardware such as hard disks, memory, sound systems, video systems and the like. The very usage of this device is to construct parts that are very much interchangeable. These devices only need to be plugged or unplugged if the user should want to upgrade or downgrade their computer hardware. Matter of fact, it was in the ‘90s when Intel initially introduced the PCI bus or the Peripheral Component Interconnect bus for its other term.
