It seems that this is the site that I need to solve all my problems. Well, my slow DW-D56A dvd writer problem. My laptop is about 3 months old and it did write at x8 and read even faster at first but in the last few weeks it has slowed to about x2.
I’ve read some threads regarding people who have suffered this (http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=128946) and it suggests that you either change the firmware to an older version (maybe PFS2 from the PFS7 that I have) or use Omnipatcher.
The thing is that while I’m fairly proficient at working my way around a computer I’m no boffin. Can someone please explain how I would change my firmware to the older version or load in Omnipatcher and then change the settings to allow me to speed my dvd drive up.
Thank you so much in advance
