I have a 40125W and have overclocked it using the VS04 firmware. When using Nero 188.8.131.52 the last 10-20% of my disc and the second dot in Nero Speed scan disc or corrupt, any full 80min disc and nearly any brand of CDr gets corrupted this same way. But, when running Cdmate, fireburner, or discjuggler I receive absolutely no errors running at Max speed (cdmate lists 48x). The time is nearly identical to finish the CD also with Nero finishing by only a few seconds faster.
Now if I revert back to the original firmware and burn the same images with Nero at max speed I receive no errors.
I am starting to think that Nero is to blame and not the liteon or the firmware for my bad discs with overclocking. Because Cdmate finished only 3 seconds slower with absolutely no errors, I believe was around 2min and 55 seconds.
Anyone have any comments about this?
p.s. What is the proper way to test my actual burn speed using different applications, I just can’t figure it out?
