    Dr. K - My only query is with the ability to choose any burn speed with different media - does it still suggest the best speed with tested media, and allow you to choose for non-tested media?

    I like the fact that the official firmware guides you somewhat depending on the media... if it still does that, then i'm happy to give it a shot...

    To be honest with you I don't think it does but I've found that even in a spindle of the same discs results may vary.

    Alternatively you could try Gradius's firmware(s)...

    ...his version only sets the drive to RPC-1 & unlock the ripping speed only.
    Still leaving you with the original burn speed settings.

    That sounds like the one I want - thanks!

    Not too worried about burn times (as i use decent media, so it gives me decent ~12x burn speed all the time), but the ripping would be nice...
