I had a bad experience with upgrading software and firmware a while ago, so i try not to do it if everything works fine at the moment. If it aint broke, dont fix it.
So, I came back to this site for the first time in a long while last night, and saw that the LTR-52246S had several firmware revisions since my old one (6s0a). So since the 6s0f has been out for a while, i figured it was safe to upgrade, plus it said it had better overburning compatability, and it wasnt jsut a 'match more media' update.
So this morning and burned soemthing for my friend. I opened nero, and clicked burn, and the max speed from the drop down bar was 32x!
This really bothers me. Also, since that problem i had in the past, i dont update my burning software too much, so i still have a semi-old version, 18.104.22.168
that COULD be the culprit, but i doubt it. also, cdrwin still reports my max speed as 52x, which leads me to believe that it could be nero.
PLLLLLLLEASE help! any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated!
