#1

hi

i just purchased some mini dvd-r’s at office depot they are the store brads it says 4x on the package but its only letting me burn at 2x. they are
RITEKG04 01

how can i burn these at 4x like they say they are sapposed to be.

i have an nec ND-2510A

and ive flashed to MAD DOGs 2.f8 firmware.


#2

You can’t


#3

i thought the drive burn -r up to 4x


#4

i mean i pay more for 4x discs and i cant even burn at 4x.


#5

I didn’t look but it must be in the firmware to burn only at 2x.

http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=120665 -> maybe this will help you understand why…
rolling56: It’s not in the firmware… default speed for unknown media is 2x


#7

so there isent a way to change the defult burn speed in the firmware?


#8

im gonna guess i cant use the nec 2.18 firmware on my 2510a drive?


#9

no you can’t use 3500 firmware in 25x0 drive


#10

if i burn these at 2x will it have a bad effect because i read that 4x discs have a diffrent chemical makeup and its best to burn them at 4x or there are undisrible(sp) results?


#11

can it be added cuz i see that on your 3500 firmware update you have it writing at 8x?


#12

true g04s are either 4 or 8x in the 2510 firmwares also but my guess is that they are id’d as something else. find dvdidentifier and post the FULL results
