I have been reading around and finally registered to see if someone could help. I have a Philips 8801 that came with a Dell system. It has worked wonderfully for the last 4 months. Now, it suddenly will only burn at 2x speed. Before it started acting up, I could get it to burn on any type of media. Now it only burns on Maxells at the 2x speed.
I have tried to work with Dell on the problem, but that is like banging my head against a wall.
Could it be a firmware problem? If so, is there somewhere to d/l the firmware on the net. I couldn't find it on the Philips site. Would it be advisable to use the firmware from the Benq that I have read about in other threads.
Thanks for any assistance.
