Burn TYG01 @ 8x

#1

I’ve been trying to burn my TYG01 dvd’s at 8x for awhile now. I’ve been browsing the forums on and off for several months, at first looking for a firmware that does it, and lately on how to do it myself. I’ve tried and failed many times, maybe someone could tell me what I’m doing wrong? thx :o
Here’s details.

DVD-RW = BenQ 1655 with BCDB firmware
MediaCodeSpeedEdit.exe to edit my BCDB firmware
Used DVD Identifer to get info using the copy to clipboard button.

  • I tried Attach ‘Drive Capabilities’ + Attach ‘Media-Code’-Block selected
  • Also tried only Attach ‘Media-Code’-Block selected

I would burn it and reboot but I can’t get Nero to give me the 8x option in the pull down. Here’s what my DVD Identifier pastes.

[B]Welcome[/B] to cdfreaks.

There are many ways to “speed-up” burns on DVD media and the simplest way is to use QSuite’s OverSpeed function.
(Link to QSuite manual.)

You can also check out this tool and results in this thread.
