i just recieved it from newegg.com and installed it.
pulled up everest program and took this info from it:
the drive is supposed to write at 16x dvd-r/+r.. but says 8x for +r and 4x for -r
am i misunderstanding all this?
is there official firmware to up the speeds?
i read on newegg on the reviews for this product that one of the customers had to pay an extra 5.00 to up the write speeds. i'm willing to pay the 5.00 but i can't find a link to it anywhere.
also, i have these crap maxell 2.4x dvd+r blanks, and my dvd-rw drive won't recognize it. any solution?
sorry new to dvd-rw drives. my dell had a dvd-rom and just replaced it today with this nec drive.
