    i got the Sony CRX320E CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo), 52x (CD), 16x (DVD) Read, 52x (CD) Write, 24x (CD-RW) ReWrite.
    the thing is, nero doesn't show up anything over 40X for burning thought the media is 52X.

    Jus found out guyz, the drive needs to be set to turbo mode by pressing down the eject button for 5 secs, but the sucker goes back to 40X afterwards.
    what the heck did sony guyz put this turbo shit in for

    As u might be knowing that SONY CD-R are LiteOn drives.You can flash LiteOn firmware for this drives and remove this 5sec thing right away.

    @darklord...humm...ill check that out. i have upgraded my firmware tho.(from Sony QYS1 to Sony QYS3)

    @sAr...sure man...speed is cool but for all the basic put-in and take-out jobs u dont need 52x thats about 7.8 mbps !. 40x is about 6mbps, good enough. tell me what kind of work other than data copying need speeds upto 7.8 mbps. even there would hadly be any difference in time taken to write cds at 52x than at 40x. be practical and be happy. i sure u might have heard stories about older Chip or other cheapo disks exploding in drives. its better to be safe.
