    eeek good luck! i hope you dont fry your drive!

    I would take a backup of the stock firmware first and check that you can reflash it if it fails.

    Let me know, I'd love to do this too! And in the worst cast scenario, what's the cost of a replacement drive anyways? Aren't they under 50 bucks?

    As luck would have it... like other firmware hacks... can't do it under Bootcamp.

    I'm gonna have to locate an honest to goodness PC and do it!

    ARGH!

    It has also been said for reliability you should never burn at the speed your drive is capable of.

    why is this? surely drives that burn at 8x would in fact be able to burn at about 10x (i stab in the dark guess) and they only limit them at 8x for reliability?
