    52a if your back ups are good or 52b if you back ups are cheap(52b reads slower)

    So a is always fast.

    B is always slow.

    And what is c and d than?

    I flashed a brand new 360 samsung ms28 with 5.2b thinking this was the wise option, and almost no backups would work (dirty disk error) and even the ones that did crashed after a few minutes. I was totally puzzled, anyway I flashed the original back and then flashed with 52c (plays backups at 12 speed) and it now works like a dream, all disks load and play with no probs. I think the 4 speed was just too slow.

    C is fast by default and can be set to slow. D is slow by default and can be set to fast.

    So how can you play an original with C in regular default fast? thanks

    I'm leaning toward C but just a little confused. Is there any site that I could read over more info?

    its in the readme if u download the 52 f/w from the normal place. if u wanted to read a org game at 12x in C, just dont put a disc in (or leave in a backup copy) when u power it on. ill post the info in the readme when i get home im at school right now, in cisco 2 lol

    Originals are unaffected. They play at their normal speed. Here's the info from 5.1 and 5.2:
