Hi there, thanks for replying. I have done the test you requested and attached a image with the results.
My system specs are as follows:
MSI 865PE Neo2-S Motherboard
Intel Pentium 4 HT 2800mhz
1 GB PC2700 Ram
ATI RADEON 9800 PRO 256 MB
2 Western Digital 120GB drives
Samsung 52X CD-R
Sony DRU-700A DVD-R
I think that about covers it. I was under the impression that they locked the read speed of these drives, but since you are telling me this one is not then I'll be happy with what I have. It is definitely a lot faster than my previous Sony DVD-R (HL-14U I think was the model), it would not read at anything higher than 2X.
Would there be any advantage to me changing my firmware to the LiteOn 832S or anything like that? Or should I keep what I have now, it currently is running VY06.
Thanks for helping me.
