Hi… I upgraded my 106D to FW 1.08 with the impression that it would unlock the drive so I could write faster. Nero and other programs see the max speed at 6x read and 4x write. I have confirmed that DMA is on as well.

What am I missing since I see other writing at faster speeds. (besides upgrading to a 109d).

Many thanks,
G

4X is the maximum for this drive. You need to buy a newer drive.
