I had made a thread about buying the PX716A or not, that got several responses…
Anyway I took my chances and bought it yesterday.
I also bought 10x Intenso DVD+R 4x and a RiData dual layer disk.
I was relieved when it was installed without a problem on my DFI NF4 mobo.
Then I put the DVD to install a recording program.The only non-trial was the Nero, however it was OEM version.
Having no other choice I installed it. I wanted to do some test burns without wastind my media to see if everything worked correctly. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do a test burn. There was no such choice in Nero Is this because it was OEM version?
Anyway I decided to do a real burn and waste the 1 of my 10 Intensos. I chose some files (around 2Gb) from my HDD and unchecked the mutisession box (so it would finalize the disk) and checked the “data verification”.
The burn speed was automaticaly set to 8x. The burn seemed to go as planned, but suddenly at the data verification I recieved an error. After this I tried the disk in both my DVD-rom and the plextor and it was unreadable.
So the first burn was unsuccessful .
Did that happen because the speed was set to 8x and the Intensos were rated for 4x? Or is it something else?
But most importantly can you tell me a good program to download to do my burns (that supports test burns too!) please?
