Hi new to this forum. I have the GSA-4163.
I bought some cheap 8x infinity media which burn fine at 8x speed. Funny thing though when i bought the more expensive and quality verbatim 8x dvd+ media they show up as 12x but during the recording process it never exceeds 6x!!! Is anyone else having this problem? I read the review on hardwarezone and they also have the same problem. I have firmware version a101 (waiting for the a102 to become official). Shouldn’t these discs run at least 8x? Can anyone explain?
The other problem i’m having is that when i open up nero or any other recording software i see that buffer underrun is supported, but as soon as i insert any media it changes to either not supported or under alcohol 120% the burn free technology shows “unknown”!!! is this a faulty drive? can anyone check this on their drive or explain. thanks.
By the way the TDK 8x dvd+ media works at 12x but i couldn’t find them to buy in 25 or 50 packs here in the UK. only found them at 49p per disc somewhere.
