I will be interested to hear how the Sony firmware works on your LTR-48246S, though.
It works fine
Only thing is, Lite-On original firmwares are MUCH better in the media-compatibility department.
As for the Turbo-Boost, here's a description from the Sony Australia website, for the CRX220 52/24/52. I assume the same will apply to the CRX215 48/24/48 model.
"Like Sony's other high performance drives this unit features dual speed modes. Normal Mode (18-40X) is for general operation where media quality is variable &/or unkown; it improves readability, reduces the need for retrys and reduces the potential for disk &/or drive damage. When Turbo mode is selected the motor speed increased to maximum (10,300rpm) and enables the full 52X Max performance"
I assume that 18-40X is for both reading and writing data. Turbo mode is selected by holding the 'eject' button for 3 seconds or something like that, and then the LED will flash thrice. Ian has covered this in his CRX220 review.
