Hello,

I have a new fitted 109 in my G5 and only 4 x is available in the speed selsction, both in toast and jam! i have tried 3 different media, all of which are 8 x samsung/datawrite and logik. i had the datawrite and samsung before and they both write at 8 x on my previous LG burner!

Any help appreciated.

Regards

Chris

Check the other threads on this issue! Very common! IDE 80 wire cable/try Nero current version/crossflash your drive to a A09 with current FW(lots of threads on this)/ Master on your IDE cable if UMDA4 is not available on the slave. ETC
Nice burner! But stinks on install!
Enjoy!

More than likely the Pioneer doesn’t support higher than 4x burning with the specific media you’re using, at least with the firmware that came with the drive. Have you tried updating the firmware?
