I am using a NEC 3520A and Media “POMSI002 01”. It’s labeled 4x but I know various burners can do 8x on it. However the NEC only does 2,4x which is too slow for me (got 200 of those DVD’s).
So my question is: is it possible to increase the write speed for this media by hex editing the firmware? Maybe herries knows more about it since he tweaked the Nec 1300A firmware for it.
Also is there a tool to change speeds like there is for Lite-On drives? I really would like to see the speed for this media increased, otherwise I’ll have to get a new drive.
Update: I played around with a dump of the firmware and saw the media entries. However there is NO entry for the POMSI002 01 media so I wonder if I could add one? Also if I modify another entry i don’t need, do I need to update some checksums of the entire file or can I just write back the dump?
Thanks for your tips in advance
