I tried burning some benq 8x (daxon az2) media using my 4160 (a303) and got some odd results. The speed started out at 6x (which is expected, I think?), then it goes to 8x, but then drops back down to 6x. Writing discs using dvd decrypter and alcohol both did this, but were still readable. When I used nero to write some video files, they were practically unviewable.
I'm assuming that its just bad media, but I want to be sure since I just got this drive a few days ago. Also, nero doesnt allow you to write discs at 6x. Is there some other data writing program that allows 6x?
