    Has anyone tried the ANV media with the NEC 2510A drive.I don't know if this is new media on the market but a friend gave me one to try and it only burnt at 4 speed instead of 8 speed.Has anyone else had this problem when using the NEC drive.

    Thanks in advance

    Is ANV the manufacturer ID? If not what is it?

    If they're only burning at 4X I'd say either they're crap, your drive's firmware doesn't recognize them as being 8X capable or both.

    Yep that is it ANV so they must be crap.Still the disc turned out ok on 4 speed.Just one other question Nephilim do you know the official web site for NEC.I had a look on googles and just got links to related sites that offer firmware updates but not NEC.If anyone knows i would appreciate.

    The bulk of NEC drives for sale are OEM so NEC doesn't have an official site with firmwares for them. This is from their website:


    I'd suggest getting your firmwares from http://forum.rpc1.org/portal.php . I imagine you already know of this site, but just in case ;)

    {DV 3141} ANV Ritek A-Grade (8x) DVD-R

    This media has been designed to work at 2x -8x in modern 8x DVD writers


    This DVD-R disc is for use in drives that take the "DVD-R/RW" format of discs,

    Please note that these discs may default to 4x in the NEC 2500/2510 depending on what firmware revision is installed.

    I have updated firmware since and these now work at 8 x speed.That's the problem with all the cheap crap NEC drives hey Pieman they all need flashing from time to time.Never had to do this with any of my previous drives i'm sure.
    Thanks
