I flashed the Pioneer 109 to AO158 region free but I cannot get either nero nor Alcohol 120 to burn above 4X, I have tried all sorts of firmwares but cannot get the speed up, my old 107 drive used to let me burn at up to 12X.
Your help is most appreciated.
Use recommended media & software and enable DMA!
Cd's are the same as what I used on the 107 drive, it let me burn up to 16X but I always let it burn at 6X, DMA is enabled, 80 wire, UDMA 66, Nero or Alcohol 120% software.
Thanks for the reply
Sorry, meant DVD's, DVD-r 4X, on the 107 drive they burned at 6X with no problems at all.
That means not much. Your 107 surely had a speedpatched nx4all firmware which is only recommended for HIGH QUALITY media.
