forced write speeds?


Recommended Posts



i just replaced my failing pio 116D with a plex px-870A. these are both IDE drives. out of habbit ive alway burned certain things @ 4x. since changing over to the plex ive noticed it does not burn anything slower than 6x no matter if its +R or -R ( at least with imageburn...have not check other burn sw). although i dont think burning things @6x as opposed to 4x would make much of a differnce....is there a way to force it to burn @4x or is this hard coded into the plex firmware and nothing can be done about it?

Look at the ImgBurn log for your burns and see what speeds you can burn your media at, or post a log and we'll tell you.
