ok, i have a NEC 2500A and am using orange bulkpaq 8x DVDR`s and whilst i know alot about hardware and building computers from being a technician for 8 years, quite frankly tinkering with firmware isnt my strong point.
the problem is this… no matter what bloody firmware i put on the damned thing it LIES ! it Says 8X 11,040Kbs per second but when you do the maths the maximum it reaches is 7100kbps and ive only recently managed to get that! im using v1.09 NEC firmware at the moment but have tried several others to no avail.
it just makes me wonder why i bothered buying an 8X burner when at the time the 4X were cheaper as thats all i seem to be able to get out of this bucket. 4x and when it feels like it it will pretend to do 8x at a little over 6x GRRRRRRRR :a
