I have an 811s firmware ver HSOE firmware running Nero 6313. System is an Athlon 64 3200 w/ 1g pc3500 ram on XP Pro and is quite stable.
I would like to have the bitsetting option enabled but cannot upgrade even to HSOK (or beyond) without the burner either burning coasters or defaulting to 2.4x (+R) and then having the write ultimately fail…HSOQ fails just as it writes the lead-in!
I either verbatim or maxell 4x media which both burn quite well with HSOE …even at 8x with excellent kprobe scans. Must say that after 100 or so burns with hsoe, I have never had a bad burn!
