Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi im hoping someone can help i have an Optiarc AD7170A i was burning DL+R at x2.4 for about a year then my smart a$$ brother upgraded the firmware now the lowest burn speed is x4 with firmware version 1.05 bad thing is i dont know what firmware was in it when i purchased it i have downgraded the firmware to 1.02,1.03 and 1.04 with no joy :confused:does anyone know how i can get it to burn at x2.4 again? its really needed any help would be much appreciated.Thanks

Sorry if i have posted this in the wrong place :o

Just curious, but why is 2.4X burn speed needed?

Hey beef barley,its my console Backups x4 is too fast and the data is not read properly.

If any one has an optiarc AD7170-A that burns at x2,4 with image burn could you please download the app WININQUIRY and post the firmware that is installed thanks:)

I couldn’t find any firmware for that drive earlier than 1.02.
