Hi. I purchased several spindles of Sony DVD+R from CompUSA a few months ago. It was supposed to burn up to 16x. I tested one of the spindles to see if it was a TY and it was. I gave that spindle to my dad and sister thinking that the other spindles were TY’s. However, I opened one of the spindles today and rescanned the disc to find that it was a Sony D21. I opened the rest of the spindles and discovered they were all D21 (MIJ). Further, my burner (which is a Samsung SD616E that came with my Dell and is capable of 12x speeds) can not burn these any higher than 4x. I’m confused by this and quite the noob. Can someone enlighten me as to why it won’t burn any faster? Further, as I have read some of the posts from this forum, the MIJ D21 are supposedly not bad in quality, but not as good as the Sony branded TY’s, right?
What a bummer. I don’t think I would have bought so many spindles if I knew they weren’t TY’s.
