I'm only getting a max speed of 12x for my Verbatim MCC003 discs.
Thats the maximum option in Nero 220.127.116.11.
I tried using my Firewire and USB 2.0, but the option, nevertheless stayed the same. I've enabled show actually write speed so I can see that it peeks at 11.7x.
I'm using my drive on my Dell D800 laptop, which shouldn'y make a difference on the speed selection.... maybe the actual results, but not the option -- i wouldn't think.
I'm about to update my NERO now, but meanwhile let me know what you all think....
