Thanks again pinto2, do you live here? If this was IRC I'd swear you must be a state of the art bot
I managed to get my super7 board OC'd to 375 at 112MHz bus, my PC133 SDRAM gave me trouble though, so it has to run at according to AGP speed. Hopefully my new K6III+500 should arrive and I can get cooking properly (possibly literally).
So right now I can burn reliably at 4x on my +RWs (which is their max speed).
HDTune tells me my HDD speed is 20.9MB/s now, Nero confirms this as ~21500KB/s - just short of a 16x burn though, so not using my TYG02 just yet.
Just getting into optimising my burns too (laying the files in the correct order), was put in touch with mooGUI and XDVDFSTools from the usual sources.
No reply from Philips to speak of unfortunately, a support guy emailed me with further questions (dumb ones at that, some were already answered in my initial question) - strangely my reply to him was met with an automated response informing me that the address I'd tried to contact wasn't able to receive mail.....
I wonder if + media burn reliably at 2x rather than 2.4x on a drive manufactured by a -RW backer?
Are Philips are out of spec with stds they agreed to?
