Help with modding FW for AOPEN 1608ARR



This is an outstanding DVD reader and CD ripper. But several of us need help on improving the burn speed process on DVDs. This drive starts out at very low speeds and ends at the max for the specified media. TY02 +8XR MIJ burns at 12X at the end but takes forever to get there. Usually more than 9 minutes. Other media is the same. Sometimes 8X will burn faster than 12X. Strange.
Would anyone like to take this on as a project, or is it a waste of time?
