I think this is in the modified Firmware you use. It seems that those modes are invalid entries because they are removed from the firmware by liggy and dee?

Am i right?

Just a tip. dont know much about the mods done in 3520 Firmwares…

MAybe that’s it.


100% correct for CMC MAG E01

2.4X has been removed to make space for the speedup.
You have to do this in NEC firmware, if a speedup is added you have to lose one elsewhere, or in our case, move the media group elsewhere.
1X and 5X are not supported for +r -R in NEC drives.


thank you guys :slight_smile: are the cmc mag e01 good media for 3520? becuse i always get no seek complete when burning in dvd decrypter dosent matter speed 8x or 4x always no seek complete :S what do you think the drive or the media? or messed up drivers in the computer?


they work great in my 3520.What brand CMC are you using?


i use infiniti :stuck_out_tongue: if it aint the media what is it then :frowning: plss someone help


I think that infiniti stuff is bad mojo.Go here and see some reviews of it.I can’t find where this Infiniti is cmc mag E01 but you’ll see the general consensus of the stuff at that link.Try verbatim,fuji maxell etc…you won’t regret it.
