Hey everyone new here... anyway I've got a LTR24103S, downloaded the patched firmware from this board and it upgraded sucessfully, i then downloaded the latest LTR32123S XSOU firmware from liteon's site again no probs there! Thank god!

When i first ran Nero 5.8.7.2 i could select 32x, 8x, or 4x speeds only... then i put a CDR in and all the speeds from 4-24x showed up but NO 32x!!! I then looked in the recorder info bit in nero and it said 24x max recording speed! What!!! Anyway i downloaded latest nero 5.8.0.2 and installed that and i could select 32x now, until i put in a cdr and its got back to 24x now and the same in recorder info 24x max! Whats the deal here??! Im mystified, CD Mate only allows a max of 24x aswell.

Is this an unsuccessful patch??? Or is it just nero/cdmate? Anyone else upgraded from a 24x to 32x and got the latest 32x firmware??

Thanks in advance!

Sergy

PS I can only read at 12x now aswell... DAMN :mad:

You annoyed your writer with shitty cdr-media. The liteon writes lots of media at 32x, but he likes the Taiyo Yuden best. Try them.

To get 32X writing:

Insert media that the Lite-On supports writing at 32X. You may use nero CD-Speed to do a simulate test-burn and see what speed it will write at with your media.

To get 40X reading:

Insert a data/music disc that the Lite-On supports reading at full speed. Then 40X will show up.

As easy as that. :slight_smile:

Yes you can upgrade under XP.
And it doesn’t matter what IDE it is.

And we don’t want you to kill your drive either. :slight_smile:

It won’t give you trouble if you do it correctly…
