NEC ND-3530A 16X IDE/ATAPI DVD±R-RW Drive (ND3530A / ND-3530 / ND3530)


Although there are already many NEC models that can burn DVD+R and DVD-R media at 16x, which is considered the maximum speed that single layer media can achieve, the new ND-3530A has even more to offer. Re-Writing speed is increased to 8x for DVD+RW and 6x for DVD-RW media. The drive supports both -R DL and +R DL media at 4x and 6x burning speeds respectively.


  • Active OPC (Running OPC)1 "Optimum Power Controller" provides for more reliable writes.
  • Easy-to-use tray model.
  • Enhanced-IDE (ATAPI) model.
  • The recorded CD-R/RW can be played on any multi-read CD-ROM Player, maintaining future compatibility.
  • Supports UDF for easy writing to CD-R/RW, DVD±R/RW discs.
  • Improved Buffer Under Run Error handling through the Active Link function.
