I am using Nero and to burn DVD video at 8x speed but it seems to increment up, first burning at 2x then 4x and finally at 8x when half dvd has been burnt. Any config I can change so it burns at 8x from the start?

Sorry to say, but the answer is no.
Write speed strategies are laid out in firmware depending on media.
Strategy you are talking about is named Z-CLV (Zone Constant Linear Velocity).
[I]Example;[/I] drive starts to burn at 2.4x, then jumps to 4x, then 6x and finally at 8x.

Many thanks pinto2, your link was really helpful too.
Got the Nec 3550A great little burner but the 8x and above write thing just threw me. Constant write speed at 4x though. crazy stuff thx again.
