Nero 6.3 sees NEC 2500A as 4X drive!

I just intalled a new NEC 2500A (FW 1.06 factory stock), in a Win 2K system. I am using Nero 6.3. It has been working so far. Except, Nero 6.3 sees the drive only as a 4X max drive. I went to Nero site, checked out the supported drives. The 2500A is not a supported drive!

Does anyone else have this problem? How did you get the drive to burn beyond 4X?

Just insert a blank DVD+R or DVD-R disc supported for 8x writing by NEC 2500 and you’ll see that Nero shows 8x writer in ‘Choose Recorder’.
