Google shows a bunch of European stores for it, but nothing in north america. Well, two hits, but they don't have any in stock. I wonder if it has a different name over here--they do that just to make people like you and me go nuts.
Thank you for the suggestion. I'll keep looking.
On a different note, my JVC-AMS6L(001) that were burning slowly on this drive burn at 8x PCAV with ImageBurn. I had been burning with Nero CD-DVD Speed 22.214.171.124 (SE3) on Win7/64 bit. It couldn't get over 2-3X. It could do full speed (12x) TR tests, but writing was slow. If it were SPTI not working, I would expect both cases to not work. So, I just don't know.
I'll just use ImageBurn now. I hadn't been aware that it saves the speed to a file which can be graphed. I was just useing CD-DVD speed because it easily produced a graph.
If anyone has suggestions, I'd like to hear them, but I have a working solution, so don't worry.
