I bought a new Dell in October. You may know XPSs and some or all Dimensions no longer have IDE on the MB. To my shock, when I went to order new SATA burners, there was no selection at all. So I waited and finally Newegg listed the Liteon SH-16A7S. I ordered it and it was practically useless; 2x speed and crashes.
So I wait longer and eventually Samsung starts selling the SH-S183L. I ordered one and it is better but still has a few issues.
For one, Nero 7 will burn at over 16x but it lists 12x as the maximum read speed! And it means it.
How can I fix that? I looked for new firmware and there isn't any.
