Sony 1x-2x DVD-RW reading problem, pls help


am using a Sony 1X-2X DVD-RW, RITEKW01
i think the reading speed is stuck at 2x which is very annoying to me
how to fix that? i already modified the firmware using a utility from cdfreak to burn at x4 and it works without a problem but the reading speed still x2
am using a laptop NEC ND-6500A DVD burner
thank you very much

It may be that the laptop writer can only read those discs @2x. Laptop writers are usually slower than PC writers. If it’s also a bit old, over a year, then it just may be that the drive is only meant to read @ 2x.

It is the problem with all laptop drives that they are slower than HH ones due to their mechanics.
