Suggestions for 451s drive

I am not as expert as many people here at the forum, so I would like to ask some of the “good” people to tell me what is the best way to to with the 451s drive. I mean, I have seen this omnipatcher program and I wonder if it is possible for me to write discs at 8x speed with this programm and make good burns. (My friend has a NEC-2500 and has some better results in kprobe.)

EDIT: I would also like to achieve good burns of CDs beacuse I use the drive mostly for CD writing. (so I don’t want that the firmware changes affect on the CD writing quaility)

Thank you in advance! :slight_smile:

Drive: Lite-On 451s
Firmware: GSB7

You can only try to overclock your drive to 851S (+R 8x).
