i just bought some Memorex 8x from Office Depot but when i tried writing at 8x with Alcohol 120% 1.9.5b2802 (it does show up as being able to write 8x in Alcohol) it said “Illegal speed for this medium” when it actually began burning and burnt it at 4x instead.
my firmware’s 3.04.
is anyone else having this same problem? do i have to update something?
