NEC 3500A problem

    For some reason when choosing my new 3500A as the recorder in Nero, it shows the maximum speed as 4x. What's going on? Am I missing some calibration thing or something? The drive firmware is the version 2.16 which came with the drive. Any suggestions? I'm desperate for an answer.

    At the moment I'm trying to use Ritek 8x +R media. Would my media keep the higher speeds from showing up even when just checking the drive properties with Nero? I figure it might not give me the option to burn at higher speeds, but at least it might show that higher speeds were possible with the drive. I dunno, Can never figure this out.

    No your drive is more than capable of buring at 8x, especially if your using 8x media.

    Have you tried a clean install of Nero? Uninstall Nero, and run Nero's cleaning tools?

    thanks for the suggestion. a clean install might do the trick. i didn't know that nero had some kind of cleaning functions, but i will look.

    If you're using a trial version, it may only allow you to burn at a certain speed until you register.

    NAw, it's the full version. Unfortunately I have not had time to address this problem again in the last day, since my wife broke her leg and I have to take care of her. I will trial a clean install of nero when I get a moment. Thanks.
