I just got one of these HP DVD move Write DC4000's. Pretty nice piece of hardware. Nero 5.5 would not recognize it so I took the risky plunge into Nero 6 (18.104.22.168) It recognizes the drive at least but will only write DVD's (DVD+R in this case) at 2.4x when the drive is suppose to do 4x and 8x also. I'm guessing that the drive is too new and Nero is operating in some kind of lower compatibility mode. I'm wondering how quickly Ahead will make an update available as this is not some obscure drive? The drive came with Sonic Record Now but get this, DVD burning requires you to purchase an upgrade! What a joke. What I am trying to do is burn DVD Movies from files created by DVD Shrink at faster than 2.4x. Can anyone recommend an alternative burning program I can use? Although I may be back in the same boat of having too new of a drive. I just hate having this new pieces of hardware and not being able to use it to its full capability.
