So I'm getting somewhat annoyed with my dvd-burner. At first it was working just fine, then after some time it began having problems burning things as simple as data cds and dvds. I've tried setting lower speeds and that usually worked, but the last time I tried to burn a dvd it failed miserably on me. It wouldn't burn a data dvd using copy to dvd even at the lowest speed, so I checked the forums which suggested to get new firmware, which I did.
Now here is my problem, first of all, the files on the dvds which I burned take forever to load (they're .mkv files) and on top of that my standard audio cds now skip everytime I start up a song. So my question is should I get an older firmware, or try out something other than the stock version?
