Using a Retail Version of the Windows 2000 Operating
System
NEC Computers configures your computer at the factory with the correct IDE Controller mode
settings for optimal CD-RW/DVD drive audio and video performance. These settings are
preserved if you reinstall your operating system using the Product Recovery CD provided by
NEC Computers.
These settings are not the default in retail versions of the Windows 2000 operating system.
Should you install a retail version of Windows 2000 operating system instead of the version
provided by NEC Computers, the correct settings are overwritten. You can manually change
them back to optimize CD-RW/DVD drive performance by following these steps.
From the Windows Desktop, right click My Computer. Click Properties. In the System

icon to display its sub-items.
