Ok, just notice the burn speed on my drive is stuck at 2x. It won't give me an option for higher speeds. I am using Fuji DVD-R media that is rated at 4x. Nero detects is as a Ritek G03. It won't even give me the option to burn at 4x let alone 8x. It burns good disks, I am just sick of spending 30 minutes to burn a DVD. That is why I bought a 8x burner. Here is what I have checked so far:
Drive came with 1.03 firmware and have flashed 1.04 and 1.06 all with the same results.
I have verified that the drive is operating at DMA2 and it is set as master on the secondary IDE with a DVD-rom as the slave on the secondary. I have checked all jumpers on the back of the drives.
I have tried using Nero6 alone and with DVDshrink. Both wont let me burn higher than 2x.
I burned a cd-r just to try that, and it burned fine at 40x
I haven't burned any DVD-RW's yet, but I don't ever intend to.
Anyone have any ideas for what to try next. I am hoping not to have to use roxio, as I prefer Nero6.
