If your answer insists that the drive itself’s firmware pre-reads media when inserted, then fine, I’ll except that if you know it for a fact. That would mean the firmware has
some sort of smart media reading per disk. None of your answers actually state it this way. I thought a drives firmware read would occur up front before the media is
inserted. And it honestly looks that way, because 1x thru 8x is available before you
put a disk in. That’s when it looks like nero is overriding. OK maybe I’m wrong.
My drive DOES SUPPORT 2X BURNING with it’s current firmware.
2x is an available choice, and it truly burns at that speed when
a re-writable disk is inserted(as you indicate). So clearly something is analyzing the
media when it is inserted, (like an 8x +R) and only allowing certain burn choices based
on the media inserted. (2x never comes up as choice when an 8x rated dvd is inserted, that was why I used “smart-burn” as an example of symptoms)
Otherwise, YES…I would like to attempt what you are suggesting.
Select 1x or 2x in nero and let the drive burn it at what ever
speed the drive wants, regardless of my choice in the nero pull down.
(I’ll use a stop watch to confirm the actual speed if needed)
So I guess I should re-phrase the question.
Does anyone know how to force the pull down burn-speed button on nero6
to say 1x or 2x for dvd’s regardless of the results in doing so.
If it is simply not possible then fine, not trying to beat a dead horse.
I think i missunderstood the firmwares function per media inserted.
