with MTKFlash and now its recoginzed by the system bios etc as a Lite-On 48125W. Then I upgraded my Nero to the newest version and decided to do a burn at 48x just for kicks. I burned 450MB of data in @ 2:15 and had nero verify the data afterwards. No errors :). The media I used was Imation 32x 80Min/700MB. Hey I’m impressed
To make conclusive tests you need to create a Full 650 or 700MB CD, because erors tend to show at the very end of the disk. At 450MB you are typically running at the 51 minute mark of an 80 minute blank, at which location the burner is running at 41X with the VS01 or VS02 firmware.
Also, Nero wil verify the file integrity of the data, correct, but that won’t reveal the C2 errors the disk might have. You need CD Speed for that, use the Scandisk, surface test function to test for them. CD Speed is located in the \Nero Toolkit folder of Nero.
