Sorry for such a noob question.
I did a lot of reading and searches but I can't
really seem to determine which firmware I should be using on my NEC 3540 ?
Basically I almost always use Ritek G05 or TYG01 media.
I usually buy from someplace like shop4tech, supermedia store, etc.
I was under the impression that these were 2 of the best and most used medias you can buy?
I am not greedy, I don't want to burn at 16X or anything like that.
Just like 6 or maybe 8X.
What firmware should I be using for best results?
I guess the liggy 1.5 is the newest and best?
I was not sure what the difference was between that and the "1.01e"
They seem to do the same things??? (bitsetting, remove riplock, etc)
Also I like to burn with Nero and sometimes dvd decrypt. Are those good programs to use with this drive??
I guess the reason I am asking this is because I cannot seem to get good burns at anything faster than 4X.
If I do 4X everything is ok. If I choose 6X then when I scan the disc with dvdinfo pro it has errors at about 20% in.
I'm just trying to determine if I simply have a bad drive and need to exchange it or if the issue is more firmware or media releated.
