Asus/Pioneer the same thing?

Also discovered this Pioneer doesn't Verify music CD-RW's very fast.  About half the speed of my LG Blu-Ray burner did.  But, the LG never burned 24x CD-RW at a full 24x.  It always said write speed miscompare, setting the write to 16x.  However, the write actually went to 21x.  But, never to 24x.  :doh:

Odd.  ImgBurn says my Pioneer drive is a BDR-209M.  The check for firmware updates in ImgBurn shows a listing in its master list of drive strings for BDR-209M.  But, the utility doesn't update the firmware.  It appears to be a newer firmware, 1.02 versus 1.01, although the ID part at the end of 1 less than mine.

The 'Kernel Version' is important with Pioneer drives.

 

There do loads of different versions but use the same main drive name identifier for most (either BDR-XXX or BDR-XXXM) and it's just the kernel versions that differ and prevent flashing of different firmware updates.
