Hi All, My NEC ND 6500 A is working at 75%

Hi All,
My name is Paul and this is my 1st thread…

  I have a Packard Bell E6310 with a NEC ND6500 A DVD-RW and it has just recently stopped working at max speed (8x) dvd (24x) cd it now records DVDs at 6x when set at max and its the same for reading aswell it reads CDs at 20x rather than the usual 24x, Not due to that matter but i have recently re-installed Windows XP and its still the same so its nothing to do with windows, I do remember messing about with Nero drive speed but it doesnt have any option to set speed and I didnt change any of the options...

How can i fix it? I dont fancy messing around with Firmware as lots of people say its dodgy AND i did it with my MP3 Player the day i bought it and it wouldnt work or allow another flash of the old 1 so i dont wanna risk it…
Can any1 please help…

Firmware updates aren’t nearly as risky as you make them sound. Give it a try if there’s an update.
