Welcome to CDFreaks , first make sure your ASUS drive is being supported by Nero if yes then you should be able to select any setting through Nero for your drive.

This is an older 8x burner & it’s possible that if you use 16x media this won’t be properly recognised by the burner & therefore by Nero or any other program.

Firmware version 1.21 seems to be the latest version available from Asus so if that’s what you’ve got already then there’s no further update available.

8x DVD±R 4x DVD±RW Multiburner

I don’t think it’s a case of what software supports your burner but what discs your burner supports.

All literature i have read and nero testing the drive tells me its supposed to be able to use all dvd blanks…maybe not all…but certainly the most common ones…
and now even with roxio out and nero in charge…
dvd rw is what it asks for???
HELP!!!
