OptoRite DD0203 ripping at 2X, speed hack firmware anyone?

I’ve updated the drive to the latest firware I could find but it is still sticking at 2X.

Please Advise.

Are there no Optorite DD0203 users out there =[

I don’t think that the drive has an intentional speed limit. Perhaps the problem is caused by something other than the drive itself.

Update.

I changed the IDE cable and made sure UDMA stuff was set and it now rips at a max of 3.7X. It will not go over that. I keep hearing of people getting up to 12X on single layer discs and 8X on dual layer. I wish I knew how they were getting that.
