I just upgraded from an artec cd-rw drive to an NEC 4551a.
There are 2 cd speeds of each drive of the same disc (a cd-rw, burnt as a cd-rom, no udf or anything). Why does the old drive reach faster speeds? The NEC is locked at 40x, is there a way to unlock it?
My old cd writer treated the cd-rw as if it were a cd-rom (read it at the same speeds), however the NEC treats it differently.
Also why are most drives limited to 48x? My cd-rom has a max speed of 52x…?
