I understand it that he wants a way to limit the top burning speed of his TY media to 8x so no matter what burning program he uses,it automatically will default to 8x .
Kind of like the way that some of the firmwares for the 3500 auto-set the bitsetting to DVD-ROM, no matter what program you use,and u don’t have to manually set it every time.
I assume he wants this so in case he would forget to manually set it to 8x he won’t get a (possible)coaster, since most burning programs default to maximum for burn speed and the max speed for the TY media on this burner is 16x.
One possible solution could be to set the DMA settings lower so that it won’t burn any faster than 8x. I think i saw where @ UDMA 33, the max burn speed is 10x somewhere but I’m not sure where.
Is this right, Mike ?
