Maybe somebody could give me some insight - I have a Dell Optiplex system - 845G chipset - 1GB DDR - I flashed my 3500 with the latest firmware from Liggy's post. I'm trying to burn on the fly from Alcohol 120% - from my Liteon Combo SOHC-5232K to my 3500AG with the Taiyo Media 8X +R (T02) purchased from RIMA. I checked the media with DVD Indentifier - it lists the media as T02 With recording speeds - 1X, 2.4X,4X, 6X-8X When burning it recognized the Media to burn at 16X - but the max speed attained is only 4X. What gives - I made sure Ultra DMA is enabled in the BIOS (I have the latest BIOS installed) and in device manager which it is. I know burning on the fly is not constant - but I should at least have speeds on this media somewhere between 8X - 12X. Any help would be highly appreciated.
