Best firmware for CMC 8x-R with NEC3500

I have got CMC MAG AE1 8x-R media,
Which firmware will burn this media turely 8x and get good quality result.
I had search forum and found it will not burn at 8x at FW2.16 and fail at 8x at FW2.26.

I’ve been using the 2c8se, and the memorex cmc AE1s burn fine @ 8x. Never had a failure with mine or my friend’s drive with them, I know cmc media sux. They play fine on the set top players, but I don’t have a way to do a real kprobe scan. Not exactly choice media, but it works. :wink:
