Nero InfoTool now shows the drive reading speed at 52x, all I did was running CD Speed tests. I noticed it reaches different read speeds depending on the CD I am using, is that ok?
I turned the system off and ejected the CD but InfoTool still shows reading speed at 52x.
Then I upgraded the firmware and everything still looks the same..
btw, I did a quick search in the forum and there is actually a little trick to enable 52x read for CD-R. The drive is defaulted to 40x indeed. The trick is holding the load/eject button for 3 seconds when loading the CD-R, this will default read speed at 52x until the CD is ejected again or system is powered off.
