mine worked fine from around november, but it has been playing up a bit
recently...it says it is writing at 4x but the simulation (also at 4x) is
always twice as fast as the burn...i think the firmware is bodged, but
since i can't get an update, i be screwed...any help would be
appreciated...

Why would the firmware be bodged, unless you have been messing with it? It
is not as fragile as you seem to think.

You can try the Traxdata update, available at:
http://www.traxdata.com/support/drivers/cdr_4424.asp

As this drive uses a firmware table to determine the maximum write
speed, some blanks are always written at 2x speed. If the problem
persists after the firmware upgrade, try different blanks.
