I recently bought an LG GSA-H22N. I read a bunch of reviews first and all of them were pretty good, so I figured for $55 I can't go wrong. WRONG! Now I'm having the same problem that others have posted here. The drive smokes right along with a $3 DVD, but when I try to use a memorex or other cheap stuff she caves. I get 4x at best! My drive is already running V-1.01 of the firmware and I can't find an update anywhere. Is there a speed program or something somewhere that can fool my drive? I really don't want to rip or hack the firmware if I can help it for fear of screwing something up. Any ideas?
By the way, why all the proprietary BS? Is a 16x dvd not just a 16x dvd?
What sense does it make to have regulated compatibility? Are these people for real?
