I’m sorry to hear that anything u burn higher than 16x isn’t read everywhere. That truly is a calamity. There may be remedies as ur probably using a bad combination of media and hardware, but if ur fine with 16x, then knock urself out. In case u were speaking about me as a pioneer, I don’t fall into that category as I don’t jump onto things, listen to spindoctors or assume newer is better. I’m just speaking based on general trends I’ve noticed where newer developments tend to bring added bonuses and increased refinement (and amount to user satisfaction). If u don’t feel comfortable clocking ur amd 2500 to 3200, or ur p4 2.8 to nearly 4 gig, its fine. I guess even if some hardware is identical but soft-modded to make em different and u want to keep it like that, u still have a warranty etc, so very well to u. My high speed burns are readable everywhere, I OC my optical drives and processors and they work perfect (gave me added productivity and saved money) so I guess if that makes me somewhat different, I can live with that. I still appreciate the progress being made in developing faster drives and intend to use them. (Hey, I’d be touchy too if I was in ur situation , so its all good :)) Take care.
