Sony DW-U55A Locked at 2x?


I’ve got an old laptop (Sony VGN-A115B) which has a Sony DW-U55A it has, up until a few days ago always been able to Read/Write to DVD+/-R/RW at 4x.

However all of a sudden it’s just stopped being able to read at 4x, and only allows 2x, it even took 4x off the list in the Nero InfoTool… It can still write at 4x though. I haven’t changed anything so I have no idea what could have caused this.

Any Suggestions?


Try enabling DMA mode.

As far as I know it’s already on (Nero InfoTool reports as DMA on)

Thanks for the suggestion though.
