I've downloaded the trial version of alcohol, and I tried to burn something with it. at the speed selection bar I get only 4x,8x,16x,24x,Maximum. I do not get 52x,40x,32x.
Is this normal?
That's because the inserted media doesn't support higher burning speeds.
I don't think so. I tested four different brands of media and all gave same result (Maxell, CMC, POSTECH, RITEK). When I select Maximum it does indeed write at 52x. Additionally, all the media is branded 40x-52x. PoweRec reports recommeded speed of 52x.
please write ur burner model number and name .
Yes, sure.PlexWriter Premium, TLA #0000Firmware 1.03
Please update your firmware to the latest one and check again.Latest firmware for Plextor Premium: 1.04
Thank you for the answer.
I regret to say that the 1.04 firmware didn't help with this problem BTW, Nero allows to select speeds without a problem.
I have also downloaded the latest devsupp from your web site.
This maybe a speed detection error with your drive. The best thing to do is to use Alcohol's internal report function. Go to CD/DVD Manager -> System info -> Report to Support Team
With the supplied information they can check the problem and find a solution.
I will do it ASAP. So it's not a hardware problem with my drive, right?
I don't think so.
