    Sick

    Ok, I bought a pack of 100 CD-R's for around $25. And my CD drive is a 52X/32X/52X. The CDs are 52X/700 MB/80 MIN. It says the CDs are capable of buring at 52X, but the funny thing is, Nero only lets me burn at 40X max. What the hell is goin on?

    Damn 25 Big Ones? There is a MicroCenter near by that is charging 10$ for a 100 pack of 52x CD-R's. I need to buy some this weekend.

    Arg, It's a Sony CRX230E, and I can't find drivers for it anywhere.

    No, not drivers. Firmware is the software on the drive itself.
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    Sometimes the advertised speed isn't always the real speed you burn at

    I have a LG 32X writer, which only burns around 24X

    Do you even realize how much of a difference it really make in real life? Only a matter of a few seconds.

    Yes, but in that matter of a few seconds, I could go to the fridge and crack me open a fresh cold one, or make a sandwich (Yes, I'm that fast), or even blow my nose. Anyways, I found this in the manual:

    *On rare occasions, some discs may not be able to tolerate 52x speed, causing them to break. We recommend that you do not use deeply scratched, brittle, or other discs that may break at 52x speed.
    *The Turbo Boost function does not increase read /write speed with CD-RW discs.


    1. Insert a disc into the drive.

    The speed when you insert a disc is normally 40x speed.

    2. Press the Eject button for five seconds.

    The Busy indicator blinks twice and the speed switches to 52x speed. (The Turbo Boost function is active.)

    Notes

    * When you want to write at 52x speed, insert the disc into the drive, activate the Turbo Boost function, and then start writing to the disc.
    * When you open the disc tray, the speed reverts to its default of 40x speed.
    * The Turbo Boost function does not guarantee a 52x write speed. Depending on the condition of the disc you are using, the speed may be lower.


    What a load of crock, I tried that, and it did nothing.
