WOW, I cannot believe it, but here it is:
Not the fastest (6:10), but for Fugi 8X DVD+R, Yuden 000 T02, overspeeded to 16X, not bad.
This was burned on my Dell 400sc with bios A08, using FireWire connection to my NewEgg BenQ/OEM 1620>EW1621 47L9. The BenQ is installed in a Plumax/Prolific Chipset, USB 2/FireWire case, with Prolific 09-07-2004 updated firmware.
Until this time I was only able to burn at 12X max, with a FireWire burst rate of 21MB/s.
I just updated my motherboard bios from A05 to A08, checked my burst rates & saw I was now getting 23MB/s to 24MB/s over FireWire. This is equal to my internal IDE BenQ burst rate. So gave it a go..........
