To keep in spirit with the previous topic, I just got a new Samsung 3090 and was one of the lucky few to receive a 320gb one (Manufactured Dec 2008). It's one of the Seagate HD Pipeline drives. Looks like they are still passing them out.
You're welcome. There are some of us with engineering degrees that actually can spell and write intelligible sentences, lol. In fact, a large part of my job is writing functional descriptions of (sometimes) complex commercial AV systems for proposals.
I can't personally say whether the AC3 setting holds after an update... haven't had any here, yet. The procedure to enable AC3 is no big deal... once you do it you will see that it takes all of 15 seconds to do.
My first 3090 (one of the very first handed out in Charlotte) was a 320GB. I turned that box in because of some issues and got a 160GB unit the second time. Unfortunately, the same problems were also in the second unit and seem to be tied to the version of ODN we have in Charlotte. NYC and Charlotte are the only markets we know of still running ODN 3.1.0_11... newer versions seem less problematic with the Sammies.
I just ordered a 320GB Seagate Pipeline drive to try in my box, since external SATA hasn't really worked consistently on any ODN box. We'll see how that goes... would be nice if it arrived before the weekend.
