As you probably know it’s possible to switch off the media compatibility check with the LTR-40125S, but this is in fact also possible with the LTR-32123S and most likely the LTR-24103S as well. But not with the LTR-24102B actually tested that one also. Nero won’t let you disable smart-burn for other writers than the LTR-40125S, but:
With the new CD-Mate beta(version 184.108.40.206) I’m using right now I could go to File–>Properties–>Speed tab and tick “disable smart-burn” and it actually works!!!
Tried with a lot of different discs that would only record at 16X, 20X or 24X before and they would now record successfully at 32X.
To test if they was fully readable I used the scandisc function in Nero CD-Speed version 0.85e beta. I tested the discs with several readers and all drives was able to read the discs back without any problems!!!
Now it’s time to use my stock with old Taiyo Yuden discs that would only record at 16X before
