Hey everyone. I wasn’t sure if I should post this in the newb section or here because its an NEC. I searched, but I couldn’t find the exact answer I was looking for.
I got my NEC ND-3500AG from Newegg a few months back and all I had were 4x DVD+R’s so I was content with 4x. It would let me burn at 8x, but I didn’t try it for fear of making a dud. I now have 16x Memorex DVD+R’s and the 8x option is the highest I have. When I select it, it actually burns at 4x. Will a firmware upgrade resolve this? I’m a little hesitant with upgrading the firmware because I really don’t feel like replacing it if anything would go wrong, so I just want to be 100% sure i know what I’m doing. The firmware version currently installed is 2.16 and DMA is off. I guess what I’m getting at is that I can’t find a update for the AG. Only the A. Will this matter? Please help. I really want to learn how to get the most out of my burner. Thanks!
