Last saturday I bought a NEC2510A along with some 8 speed R+ and R- disks (brand = platinum). The drive recognizes the +R disks as 8 speed but the R- disks as 4 speed.....any idea anybody??

I imagine NEC's firmware doesn't support them for 8X, wait for a newer firmware to allow 8X

Hi guys.

This is one of my first posts. Nice to meet you all!

If it really becomes a problem, and the 2.15 firmware (official) does not allow for 8x writing, one could always just use Herrie's now legendary Beta6 firmware that allows 8x to most media codes, with amazing results.

Go check it out, if you feel interested:

Excellent! With your barrage of tests, it'll be very interesting to see how the burns perform in various readers.

emperor :

It is to bad that the stock 2510a fw 2.15 does not have booktype setting in it. I for one dont like to use hacked fw , it ok to hack 2500 to 2510a with fw load but I dont want to use herries fw as it has number of things added I dont want. an example I have no problem with using HP 520n 2.21 on 2510a if it had 2510a name string so that I could windows flash it , but so far it does not and it has rip hack , as well as rpc1. I dont want these. If herrie had fw hack of 2.21 fw that had windows loader for 2510a and it didnt change the name to 2500a 107 and it was stock but with writing speed tweaks only I would think about it. But since herrie has made it very plain he wont make one like this. I will keep to stock 2510a fw and hope nec will add bitsetting once people start using DL and find it wont work on 90% of standalone players due to them not having a clue about DVD+R DL booktype.
