I was told that trying 4 times media at 12 times was too much. Is this true?
Because I got my cheap "BulkPaq DVD-R 4.7 GB 4Xspeed" to write at 16x, and produce no errors.
Media Type .......: DVD-R
Media ID .........: PRINCO <--- (That was suprising)
Speeds ...........: Made for 4x
Capacity .........: 4.35 Gb of data written
Sectors ..........: 2281008
Layers ...........: 1
At ebuyer it is currently:
Â£4.46 (UK) / $8.59 (US) / $10.33 (CAD) / â‚¬6.30 (EUR)
To me that looks very good. Only Â£4.46 for 25! Well they are having a deal sale.
I installed NILs 1.14 hack for my Pioneer DVR-108, and then tried buring them at 16 speed. It all seemed to go fine and the verification was fine.
I then ran some further tests using Nero CD-DVD speed and VSO Inspector. Here are the results:
Nero CD-DVD speed disk quality check wouldn't work (The start button was disabled even though there was media in the drive) and then it crashed when I tried to do another test.
Nero verification and VSO inspector reported no errors.
