hey guys, i just recently purchased the 3500a but it refuses to write faster than 2.4X on the dvd+r’s that i have, though my friends burner does it fine at 4X (they are 4X btw). i used dvd indintifier to get the info for the disk, if anyone know how to modify and get the burner to work at 4X that be great. thanks. :bow:

Jiggio, welcome to the forum.

First of all, which firmware do you use? I think you still use the stock firmware and maybe you should try a modified firmware.


#3

hi, thanks for the reply and nice to bere here :slight_smile: . i am using a modifed 2.18 liggy i believe, i have also tried the official 2.18.


#4

this MID is not supported by the firmware… That’s why you can only burn them at 2.4x


#5

good news, i sold off the dvd;s i had and purchased some “smartbuy” 8X , just tested one and burns without problems at 12X thanks to the new firmware :stuck_out_tongue: . so all is good.


#6

Heehe “SmartBuy” LOL


#7

they burn at 12x so i;m as happy as can be with them :slight_smile: so far no problems on several dvd players. btw i had a question for you Quiakee2, when going through slovenia towards croatia (from austria) is it faster over ljubljana or through maribor? and at what times? i tried through ljubljana 2 years ago and itwas all fine throught he highways, but was told maribor was faster and got stuck in a huge traffic jam from maribor all the way to the border, any idea when the route is clear? thx.

Well I don’t know really… In the summer there is always a traffic jam here… especially on weekends no matter what hour you get here I think.
