I do have alcohol & you solved my first problem, thank you.
I burned another disk tdk 48x at 52x and it still took 5:45 to burn with the red light staying on after about 25 sec.
I thought I was losing it for awhile, I scandisked my tdk 40x and these are the readings
Dye Type 7 short strategy (phthalocyanine)
I then tested one of my tdk 48x disks and it was identicle.
I then took the disk that came with the 52246 and tested it, guess what? it was the same, all Ritek with the same code.
speed average on all the disks was 39.30x.
The program MInfo shows the
cur. speed = wrt (52x), rd (12x)
should I go into DriveSpeed and change parameters or is there another way to check this?
Note: Smart burn shows
smart-burn speed limit = 52x. Ron
