Whenever i try to burn something at 52x when it hits about 36-40x the drive just stops spinning then goes to 16x and start burning nothing for the rest of the cd, you can actually see the color change at the bottom of the cd after. With alcohol 120%. Its rediculous that I have to burn at 32x.
So flash it back to 6S0D. Some people has problem w/ the F, and some don't, you're just one of the unlucky ones. What firmware were you using before F, and what made and model of media are you using now?
this is a media issue, SmartBurn is doin it's job. You'll get faster times at 40x.
Maybe youre right, i have 48x princo media smart-burn tells me I can burn them at 52x so i tried. I dont remember what firmware i had before because as soon as i got the burner i went to their website and updated.
