Ok silly question time. I’ve just purchased a NEC 2500a burner and straight away flashed it to herries beta 5 firmware and all seemed to go well. On a fresh install of windows I installed the latest version of nero. Originally it only showed up as a cdburner not giving me the dvd burning functions. I rebooted the machine and it now saw it as a dvd burner. However I then went to burn a movie and noticed down the bottom where it has the red line showing the capacity you can fill it was up to 9gb. I was just trying to burn a standard 4.5gb disk so dragged over the files. I then clicked burn but it told me I’d need to insert a dual layer 9gb disk. I tried two different medias (princo and ritek) but it still wouldn’t let me burn. I did some searching around for a setting to disable the dual layer thinking that’s what needed to be done but I couldn’t seem to locate it am I looking in the wrong areas.
Also I’ve noticed the drive still shows up in windows and nero as a 2500a not a 2510a even though it’s flashed and seems to have all the dual layer functions is this correct?
Finally is it possible to reduce the speed of the dvd drive to 1 or 2x for dvd movie playback if so how do I go about this?
thanks in advance
