Ok, I have been thru all the forum, but really wasn’t sure what to do as there was so much info and firmware versions. sigh
I have two NEC burner, a NEC2510 (8X) and NEC 3520(16X). Now I have been using the highly recommended Ritek G04’s DVD-Rs(4X) for burning since I first got my NEC2510 and it takes like 14 mins to burn a DVD.
Well, I just got 300 new blank DVD-R’s, this time Ritek G05’s(8X). There are the ri-data branded silver matte 100 packs available on newegg.com. Well, now I am a little pissed…these 8X DVDRs still take 14 mins to burn. So, if Ritek is supposedly reliable media, why can’t I burn them at 8X? From reading these forums, I am guessing I should update the firmware, but I have no idea which firmare version I would need to get this issue fixed. Both drives should be able to burn these G05’s at 8X. I am currently about to burn 300 DVDs…so the time difference between 4X and 8X will save me so many hours…?
so, what firmware should I use for these two…or if it isn’t firmware, what should I do to get these drives to reliably burn at 8X?
Thanks for any help and suggestions…
