what seems more strange about this is that the specs of this Memorex True 8x drive (external) which i got from Fry's does not exactly match the specs of the True 8x drive featuerd in the CDRLabs reveiw of the Memorex True 8x.
http://www.cdrlabs.com/reviews/index.ph ... page=Intro
i even checked the part # 32023277 for both the drives and they match.
The main difference between what I have and what was featured in the reveiw is the CD-R (write) and CD-RW (re-write) speeds.
The model reviewed here has CD-R: 32x and CD-RW: 16x where as the one I have has CD-R: 24x and CD-RW-24x. My box is also different from the image of the one reviewed where my box shows CD-R and CD-RW speeds as 24x and 24x (unlike the image of the box of the drive reviewed which shows 32x and 16x)
However both these verisons of the True 8x model have a DVD+R and DVD-R speed of 8x but i cant seem to get nero to write to a 8x media DVD at 8x.
Checked for nero software updates and memorex firmware updates and still no luck. Any other things i should be looking at?
