i already searched the forums, but didn’t find a solution.
i have the above mentioned drive in my dell inspiron 9400/1705.
i can burn dvd and even cd at a speed of only 0.8 or something like that. i tried different media. last one was fuji dvd+r (16x). dvd-identifier told me i can burn this media at 8x.
i also tried different software (nero7, alcohol). always the same. no difference between audio-cd/data-cd/image-burning.
firmware: UDS2 (shipped with it)
another unusual thing: i can’t change the firmware. i tried “UYS3WIN.EXE”.
output: “no matched drive detected! - this utility is only for SONY DVD RW DW-Q58A drive. Detected drives: 1-0-0-0 E: SONY DVD±RW DW-Q58A UDS2”
another thing noticed: some discs cause the laptop to use all resources for the drive. when this happens, i can’t even start a program. it’s extremly slowed down.
does anybody has a suggestion. or maybe someone had the same problems?
greetings and thanks in advance
