I have a Sony model #DW-U18A 8x single-layer DVD burner, and I just did the flashing/conversion found in this page:
Everything went smoothly, so no complaint there.
I had an old PC, and the burner was working fine, burning at high speed (8x). I recently switch to a newer PC, and from day 1 the burner could only burn at 2.4x. The USB is 2.0, and with the firmware update, I thought I was going to correct the problem; it just remain the same.
Since Im a newbie in all of this, I wonder why cant I burn my dvd-r's at more than 2.4x ??
thx in advance.
