I have a Sony CRX230AD which I purchased July 2005. Windows XP (sp2) shows it as a CRX230ED. PLUS it’s supposed to write at 52x, but I can’t get more than 40x. Sony site shows no firmware updates. I’ve been reading something about this model being a LiteOn and updating firmware another way in order to take full advantage of the CD burner’s speed, but I have no idea what they’re talking about. Would someone walk me through or at least tell me if they know what’s wrong with my CDRW? Thank you!!! :slight_smile:

I have a Sony 230EE. To get it to burn at 52X you need to press and hold the eject button for about 5 seconds. The drive light flashes twice, and your in 52X mode.

The problem is, when you eject the disk and put the next one in, you have to reset the 52X mode - bummer!

Anybody know a way to set the drive permanently to 52X? Pleeeease?
