Can anyone tell me the best media to burn R- discs for the new NEC. I want 8 or 16x speed. From the selection below ====>
Media with mediacodes TYG02, TYG03, MCC02RG20 and MCC03RG20 will burn nicely. Watch out for fake TYG.
Try either Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim.
Many people buy 8x & record at 12x. This is because of the performance vs cost, for a lot of folks find with 16x they end up recording at 12x for preference when wanting quality.
I myself use Infiniti 16x a lot recently (100 @ Â£18 bulk purchase). These are MCC coated but consistancy is not quite on a par with Taiyo Yuden. Hence any thing of importance I record at 12x.
Your 3540 will excell with either media.
I buy Verbatim 16x DVD-R’s and have had great luck.
