I just received 100 BeAll DVD-R disc and I cannot get the disc to burn at 4x. They are supposed to be 1-4x disc according to BeAll.
I use Nero 6 Re-code 2 version 22.214.171.124 to burn DVD video files.
Nero recode drop down burn speed window will only allow me to choose 1x or 2x with the BeAll DVD-R disc but I can burn at 4x with Memorex DVD+R media no problem.
My drive is a IO/Magic DVD DUAL 4Xmax drive with the very latest rom flash firmware version.
Down below is the media info on both the BeAll disc and the Memorex disc that I retrieved from DVDinfo Pro.
How can I get the BeAll media to burn at the advertised 4X speed in nero recode 2?
Thanks in advance
