well updating the firmware while installed as IDE device worked well... what's more is i'm able to burn an svcd image file to cd-r @44x speed instead of 16x on the same media when i used 1.0b firmware......

now to test a cd-r data burn using 1.0c :)

also seems that the Liteon 32125W works fine in the USB2.0 external enclosure... so it must be only the Yamaha doesn't like the USB2 case :(

if I'm correct, there're a lot of very unique design with the Yamaha. Even their C2 detection isn't the usual C2 that most other drives use.

yeah... I got sick of the orange and green lights on my Antec SX-830 that I ripped them out and replaced them with blue LEDS.

I've been planning to change them over to purple if I can fiind some purple LEDs for a good price to order. Been thinking about lacing up my keyboard with blue/purple LEDs since I usually have the lights turned off in the room with computers.

Here's also something to keep in mind about the CRW-F1, when you do a cdspeed test with a cdr media, OWSC is actually disabled. so it's kinda pointless to do that test with the CRW-F1. You'll want to actually regedit your Nero so that it shows the actual burning speed, and do an actual burn to see what the actual speed is.

Nice lite mods. I modded a wiresless microsoft Intellimouse explorer with a purple LED, got it at Radio Shack. There is a website www.techtv.com/screensavers that has tons of mods. There's a guy there that does tons of mods, they give you instructions and parts lists.

Radio Shack has purple LEDs?

man.. I didn't know that.. I've been looking through www.mouser.com for LEDS. They have this one that's multicolored, and some hi-eff white.

Very tempting for me right now.

Plus those things at radio shack is just too expensive.

www.digi-key.com is also a good place for your electronic needs.

Eva2000,
You mentioned "do you know where i can find more nero registry hacks ? cause i see in yamaha burner nero has simulation check greyed out..".

The reason that the simulation box is greyed out is because the "buffer underrun protection" (Safeburn is the Yamaha technology used to prevent buffer underruns) box is checked. If you want to use simulation, just uncheck that box. Reason: most simulations were done for fear of buffer underruns so there is no need to
simulate the burn process if buffer underrun protection is enabled.

The LED's at Radio Shack are not expensive, unless you consider under a dollar expensive!

Not all external case will work with CDRW drives. If the case was made for a CDR drive that may be all you will be able to use. I believe it has to do with how the usb bridge is made and or the firmware on it. Talk to the company who made the case and see if they have any suggestions.
