ROFL @ Wes
I've been sitting staring at my monitor for ages...................waiting for pc to reboot.........no-one told me I had to manually restart to let the changes take place LOL
@mdl3r1 regarding the firmware I tried out this one:
2510_2.F9_RPC+RL (simply as it looked like the most updated on the site)
Made a few test burns and realised firstly that it seems to read DVD's a lot faster for ripping ie 10.8x where as the previous firmware I had (Herrie's Beta v?) seem to max out at 8/9x, downside was that it restricted the burn speed of DataWrite (Princo?) discs which I had to hand at 4x where as the previous firmware went up to 6x.
My main reason for updating is to run a program that allows me to burn 10hrs of video onto a DVDR (forgot the name............not very helpful I know LOL). I appreciate that the end result will be compressed but I wanted to ensure that I got a good burn so it should playback better on different standalone players.
Hope that makes sense............if not.........I think they released me a bit too soon!!!!!
