Hi friend! I understand what you mean, old drives that served you so many years are hard to forget, just remove it from your system and let is rest in dust

AFAIK, the only thing you cand do to a HP8100 is to upgrade the firmware to the Sony CRX100E's one to make it support 80 min CDs. I changed the firmware some years ago and it's still working fine (it has been 8 years or so since I bought this recorder!!!).

From http://members.chello.nl/t.zijlstradijkstra/HP8100_10N_HACKED.ZIP
you can download the Sony CRX100E firmware hacked to change the name of the recorder to the original one (HP8100). See the readme file.

At http://www.cdr.cz/rekordery/hp/8100.htm you cand find the HP original firmware and  the Sony one and some additional data about the recorder.

Another thing you cand do is to open the drive and clean its lens for smoother media reading. But there is no miraculous to make it faster.
