When I check the DVD write speeds range in Nero info tool, the top DVD burn speed is “8x” 12x, 16x, and 20x are not listed. When I put a TYG02 blank in, it is limited to 8x. It looks like an 8X drive.
I flashed Codeking’s most recent over speed firmware for this drive, 9L09, but the drive is still limited to 8x. Everything else appears normal.
I have a new Dell box with XP Pro that originally came with a CD only burner in this SATA slot. I can run my USB BenQ external dive at speeds over 8X, no problem.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
