my 16x NEC writer only burns some disks at 8x
First of all I am using 16x disks. Some brands like memorx work fine. others like maxell(some of them) and tdk will only burn to a max of 8x. However, the TDK are marked as 24x disks !!!
I have a NEC-7800A writer. Anyone have any ideas. Its really bugging me. I use nero to burn stuff and the tdk 16x disks decrease the writer speed from 16 to 8.

come one someone must have had this happen before. maybe I need to update the firmware. Where would I go to get that?

I'm going to move this to cdrw where perhaps you'll get a reply.

Uncheck the smart burn box! Also set your cache in Nero to 80mb and HD space to 800 mb. Make sure you have your speed set to max in the boxes. Also, are all these tests off your HD or on the fly?

smart burn box ??? never heard of that, where is this located?
I've done a mixture of on the fly and off the hard disk.
as for buffer size, when it does recognise disks as 16x, it does them perfectly, so I assume my PC can handle it. XPs inbuilt burning stuff isn't interfering with it, is it?

Do you have nero If not, go to the site and download. :D
