Memorex is known for cheap quality and the manufacturers do test all major media for compatibility reasons and limit the writespeed in case of problems.

Glad that they do that!

Hi there,

Memorex is known for cheap quality and the manufacturers do test all major media for compatibility reasons and limit the writespeed in case of problems.

Humm, I guess my NEC-3550a is missing a feature :frowning:

Error 666: Get Rid Of Those Damn Media :slight_smile:

New medias with new or even disguised mediacodes appear faster on the planet than manufacturers can release new firmwares… :wink:

CMCMAG M01 is hardly a new MID. It predates the 3550 by some margin.
Perhaps this is NEC issue?

That was a generous statement - I thought it would be “obvious”. :wink:

burn the same discs at 16x no problem with my 3500 using dee.s 2tg firmware

With my current batch of M01 they manage 16x with ease.
I’ll try and remember to speed them to 16x in the next firmware release.
