I need a bit of help. I downloaded the new NEC firmware (1892...) and loaded it into NecDump because I want to make sure my preferred media (MXL RG03) still burn at the 16x it currently does (I get decent verify, find the Maxell 8x media reasonably priced on sale, and have 100's stocked up). NecDump shows 2x for the media with the new firmware. The last mod firmware I saw showed something similar, which is why I didn't upgrade to it. Am I seeing a reporting discrepancy, or am I really going to be stuck at slow burning speeds if I upgrade? I specifically want PI/PE scanning. I'm willing to live with the RipLock and RPC2 of factory firmware.
I just checked my factory firmware and the 1.04 from December, and both report 2x in NecDump. However, DVDInfoPro clearly shows I can burn it at 16x, and that's exactly what Nero burns it at when I burn. The issue with NecDump v1.2.2 is a minor one if it is just somehow reporting wrong, but mostly I just want to make sure I can still burn "MXL RG03" at 16x with the new 3.04 ND-3520a firmware.
