I have a HP 8220e external drive that I took apart and am using it as an internal drive. I was wondering if this drive is equivalant to any of HP’s internal drives, and if so, what model number? Nero CD Speed says it’s a “HP CD-Writer+ 8290” but I don’t think HP made an 8290. It also says the firmware version is 1.3C.
Also, would it be possible to overclock this drive at all? Only being able to burn at 4x4x24 really gets on my nerves.
