Hello all - first time posting so please be gentle…
For a couple of months I’ve been using my NEC 2500a burner in an external enclosure, connected to my laptop (P4 2.8, 1 gb, XP) via firewire. This has worked flawlessly at 4x speed. Tonight for the first time I tried to burn a disc using 8x media, naively thinking that the “8x” option would appear on the screen in Nero Express. Of course it still stopped at 4x.
My question, and please excuse me if this is simplistic stuff, is could this be because of the firewire connection, or should this make no difference? And if not, is there anything else that could be causing it not allowing 8x writing?
The 2500a is about 2 months old and has firmware 1.6, and Nero is 18.104.22.168 OEM version.
Any advice gratefully received!
