Nero & DVD burner speed problems.

I bought a new 8x dual layer LG DVD writer to replace a Optowrite 4x.
All appears to be working well but NERO will not run the LG drive at 8x and will only go to 4x defeating the object of why I bought a quicker drive.

Any help gratefully accepted.

cheers

Try updating Nero so that it recognises your new drive as an 8x

Hi I've just checked and done the following:-

1) updated NERO to 6.3.1.17 (very latest full update)
2) checked media for 8x - ok Ritek 8x

Sorry to be a nuisance but it will still only write at 4x.

Please any more help?

cheers for all the help so far

Have you installed the patch given in johnytub's second click here?

Not guaranteeing it will do the trick but it looks a good bet.

I had missed the patch - cheers

I've just run johnytub's patch now and re-booted and it still shows in Nero as 2x & 4x respectivly
