Can’t Burn at Anything but 48X!

Here’s a weird problem that’s plagued me at work for a while. My CD burner in my work computer would not burn at any other speed other then 48X! Not slower or faster, just 48X. It came with a Dell and it is model HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8483B made by LG. After doing an Internet search I found this thread. It seems this is a known problem! By using the firmware provided it introduces three new burning speeds: 8x, 12x and 16x. Surprisingly, the 48X speed is gone. Hmm! I actually had to disconnect my other CD-ROM drive and make the burner the “master” drive before the update would actually work. Hopefully this entry will help anyone using this particular model of CD-ROM burner
