Is the Lite-On Smart-Burn write speed limit the optimal speed for best quality burns, or is it simply the fastest speed a particular CDR can be written at?
My drive is a Lite-On LTR-52327s (firmware QS08)
Just some advice: upgrade to QS0C or QS0E! :bigsmile:
Will this produce better quality burns or increase compatability with newer CDRs?
Yes, it will do both!
The earlier firmware revisions for the LTR-52327S weren't all that great.
It's just the "max" speed available, not the "best" one. The only way to know the difference is with error scanning. With some media, the max speed is great, with others it is not so great.
