I recently got a new tub of Taiyo Yuden’s (dvd -R 16x).
I tried to burn about 4 gigs of data but it took 12 minutes, which is twice as long as normal when using 8x discs. The burn quality was fine but time had doubled. When burning in nero it says it’s going at 16x but I know that’s not actually correct.
I then thought I should have updated my drive’s firmware (although thought it was already 16x capable). I’ve now updated it but still getting burns taking about 12 minutes for pretty much a full disc.
My drive is a Philips dvdr1640P and now has firmware P3.7
I’ve tried reducing the burn speed in Nero to 12x (still takes 12 mins)
Also tried burning with imgburn but that took even longer.
By putting in a 16x disc before updating firmware have I bust my max drive speed? If so, can it be fixed?
Any help is much appreciated…
