Okay, first off. Nero is acting funky, i had a bit of an older version of nero 6 ultra. when starting nero and selecting dvd-rom, and going to burn tab and selecting burn speed, i was only able to select 4x, so i quit, started nero again, and then i was only given the 2.4x option. quit, rebooted, uninstalled nero, reinstalled nero, then i got 5x or something burn speed, i’m like, WTF is going on here. my drive had firmware verison BS0A, i flashed to BS0G. and updated my nero to 18.104.22.168. and i’m now still only able to select 1x 2x and 2.4x burn speeds. WTF is going on here? i have Ritek Ridata 8x silver discs,I burned a DVD backup of Doom 3 at 2.4x and man it took long time and barely halfway filled the DVD. So i dont wanna do any major burning til i get this figured out.
It gives me the low burn speeds even if no media is inserted. I also disabled Smart-Burn but that didnt change anything.
The drive is pretty much brand new, just got it from newegg along with the media.
