far as i know the FW is properly updated. i’m sure it could be the media, but i had the problem when i first got this drive of not being able to burn CD-R’s at 52X. i was able to fix that with the utmost satisfaction by upgrading the FW. haven’t had any issues until i tried to use the new 24X CD-RW’s. looking at the SMART-BURN info, it may be the fact that i’m using generic 24X CD-RW’s. here’s a link to the test info from Nero:
any suggestions, observation and/or tips will be greatly appreciated.
