I just installed my new NEC 2510 and flased it with Herrie's 2.16 firmware. The only media I have right now is the free Newegg media, RITEKG04. When I insert the disc and open Nero it shows the max write speed as 4X. That's fine, I assume that is the max write speed for the media. I eject the DVD-R and Nero only shows the max CD-R write speed of 32X. I select new compilation hit the Burn tab and it shows Maximum, 2.4x, and 1x.
I've tried using DVDInfo and Nero Info Tool and neither show a DVD write speed of 8x. Is there a way I can make sure this drive is able to write at 8x. I will be getting some more media later this week Thursday/Friday.
