WHY?
Why cant it burn any higher than giving me faults, is my hardware lacking capacity?

Wipe ASPI 4.7x and install 4.60.
Then, update the firmware to 1.39 and choose the correct speed for burning…

ok, but what about ForceAPSI, is that something i should do aswell, or just a downgrade to 4.6?

ForceASPI contains ASPI 4.60.

how come v4.6 is better than v4.7


It’s just a fact, experienced by countless users.

the fact is duely noted :=)
