OC limits read? (LTR40125W -> 48125W)

I’ve noticed that in Nero InfoTool that the CD Read speed shows maximum 8x. Would this be due to the updated firmware or what? (I assume the max read speed is supposed to be 48x)

Anyone else showing this?

(Using VS08 firmware)

I have yet to go back to the original verbatim Z8S5 to see if it makes a different though.

Try putting a pressed CD into the drive before starting InfoTool.

Thanks

I see, that made a difference as to which pressed cd I put in.
Read speeds: some cds are 8, others are 48, (is this explainable?), and with no cd inserted, its random

And don’t get me started on Write speeds, but those I don’t care about that except when a CD-R is inserted :bigsmile:

I really don’t know why this is… I’d like to know.

tell me about it. my oced 48x rips WAV from CD at 32x. WTF?

Try changing your drive to DMA access or put your burner on the Ultra DMA cable (to try and speed things up generally)
