I've been having quite a hard time with this "cheap" media (which actually reads very well BUT my Nec 1300A does not see the media as 4X which it is supposed to be.) It's under the brand, "Hypermedia." The odd thing is I had a previous batch which did all burn at 4x and a batch before that which were also seen at 2x. Now, I know what you're thinking, just switch to better media right? Okay, I will.. however my question is this:
If I were to switch from the “official” 1.0B Firmware to Herrie 108v2 hacked firmware could I burn this media at 4x? (I still have 30 dvds left) Additionally, would I be losing any abilities by switching to Herrie’s firmware instead of the official?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
