212D Max Speed at 12x?


I just purchased a Pioneer 212D drive to replace my dieing Lite-On drive. Anyways, my DVD+R media as Memorex rated at 16x. However, the drive will only let me burn it at a max speed of 12x. I have never had this problem before. I flashed to the latest firmware and still no go.

My specs:
AMD Athlon 64 3400+
Asus K8N

Forgot to mention that I am using Nero Express

Memorex 16x isn’t that good media, so i guess the burner limits you to burn @12x for safe measures. (i used to burn that media @ 8x)

Try using a good quality media such as TY’s or Verbatim’s

Memorex media is just a BAD CHOICE.
