Mine did. Actually my dvd drive sucked. I made about 20 coasters and had only 2 successful burns - i tried 4 different types of media (sony, optodisc, ritek g04 and g05). Didn't matter what speed.
I returned the drive so far but not sure what'll happen (ie refund or replacement). Right now I swapped out my NEC6500 into the bracket and it's working like a charm.
I had a posted in the general that i asked too - how's your hotswap working? Mine doesn't seem to work that well. I take the drive out, no problem. Put it back in but it doesn't recognize.
Also, are your HD and dvd drive on primary? I find that both being on one channel makes things slower.
Also the SATA adapter I think is just a SATA-->PATA adapted. THere's no SATA controller onboard that I can see.
