i'm learning how to flash my sony dw-u12a dvd ± 4X burner. so far it sounds dangerous and i'm not sure which version i'm supposed to use. i came along to this old thread and someone suggested
"Did you set it as Seconday slave, with another CD-Rom as Master? Make sure it is an ATA100 cable, not a 66 cable too"
what the hell is ATA100 cable?
if anyone knows which firmware version i should use please let me know. my burner was pulled from a vaio desktop and it will not burn at 4X although nero says it is. it takes 25-30 mins to burn a dvd at 4X so it really is burning at 2X. one dvd was playable in my sony home dvd player, but not in my dvd-rom. if i didn;t have these problems i wouldn't even think about flashing. this is where i found the firmwares:
