    What media are you all using to burn at 8x or above? I can only burn at 4x using 8x rated ridata disks and the free 4x ones Newegg sent. Its really frustrating, what are you all using for this drive?

    Thanks

    smg7834,
    Try flashing your drive with the latest firmware update.

    Could you point me in a direction on how to do this? My understanding is that there are no firmware updates for this burner as it is relatively new. Thanks

    Look on the NEC website. There may not be any updated firmware, but thats where I would start.

    Hey Nephilim,
    You always give very good information and usually a link to some more. You must have a hard drive full of nothing but links to awsome websites. How come your so smart. You've got my respect. Please let me know if I'm ever out of line.

    Lol! I do have a sizeable folder in my browser's bookmarks just for DVD related links :)

    Thanks for the compliment, it's a nice change from all the other stuff I've been called lately :p
