So i just got my first dvd burner a NEC 3520A and i took out my CD burner and put that in. Went easy as can be and was happy since i have like no experience with that kind of stuff.
I ordered it from newegg and there it says it is OEM which someone explained to me means that it came with no cables or what not. So not really knowing what i am doing i browse around and start reading here and there and notice the term firmware popping up alot so i went and got the official firmware but when i opened the readme it told me that it was not for OEM.
Is this true? If so should i bother with firmware? The real reason i am wondering is because i use Nero Burning ROM v220.127.116.11 and i successfully burned a .iso onto a DVD at 8X speed which is the speed of the Legacy DVD-R’s i purchased but reading the comments on the DVD-R’s i noticed people mentioned that they were capable of burning 12X speed with modded firmware on a NEC burner (this very well could be a different burner then i have, i’m not very knowledgeable when it comes to this stuff).
But basically should i be worried about firmware at the moment? And do you think it is possible i could get 12X from these DVD’s instead of 8X? I can’t help it i’m greedy lol but if i can get 12X over 8X then chances are i’d like to do it.
