I tried to, but I can't simulate it, and I'd rather not waste a DVD... I stuck an 8x in there, and it showed that it could burn at that speed... I burnt at 6.1x previously(I started to burn without a disk, so I had no speed selected. It tends to use rather low speeds, as it did the same with my CDRW...)

No drivers. I stuck mine in a firewire case(as well as tried it on IDE) and it worked flawlessly with no additional software. I dind't even have a DVD burner in the machine previously.

They get me from 0 to 1...
