    I heard somewhere that you can double the speed of any dvd writer. I have a
    friend with a 8X writer that he wants to double up on. The writer is a Dynex

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Flash the drive firmware?
    Any flashing is risky, you might end up having a death drive.

    Firmware updates can make an 8X drive work with 16X disks,
    but it won't double the speed. That's usaully a HW limititation that can't
    be fixed by FW.
