Firmware update for ldw-811s

I purchased some 16x blank media dvd’s, and obviously my burner is not a 16x it’s a 8x. I would still like to burn at 8x, but for some reason nero and my burner will only allow the maxium of 2.4x. What do I need to do? Sorry if this is a repeated question. Thanks in advance.


2.4x is the standard speed for unknown media. the newest firmware for your drive is [B]HS0R[/B], download it here:

if you still can’t burn faster after updating the firmware, you can try to add the mediacode with omnipatcher and then reflash the drive, see here:

I tried downloading the new firmware but it tells me im up to date with the HSOR .

I’ll give that other one a try. Thanks
