Well, thanks to you and your Code cohort, of course my 411@811 is speed patched!!! I patched it as much as I could before basically treating it like an overpriced cd burner since it pretty much ruins every dvd I try to burn. Great cd burner though!
The 812@832 is another story. Your firmware has never failed me on that one (especially with TY* and MC* dvd+r's).
Thanks for the answers, I still can't seem to make the 832 rip as fast, but there is really no issue I guess (besides my annoyance and curiosity) since I can still continue to use the 811.
