DVD Guru's Please help

Hi all im new to the forum and just recently purchased a 4160

I bought a spindel of Ridata 8x- media and burned “The Terminal” with Nero but for some reason it will only let me burn at 4x?

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light for me as to why it wont let me burn at 8x?

Thx in advance

What is the media code? If it’s RITEK G05 then this is what you get from this media on LG drives.

Get Lite-On SOHW-1633S to burn it at 12x. :slight_smile:

I dunno which number is the dvd code theres 2 numbers on the inner rings but here they are


I prefer LG drives :bigsmile:

And to eLiguL:

Download DVDINFOPRO press the “media” icon and you’ll get the media code.

Hmmm… it doesnt say anything about 8x… I think i got scammed and bought a spindle of 4x but its weird cuz there was a sheet of paper inside of the that said 8x-… ah well i wont buy this brand any more

certainly a X4 media.

buy decent media verbatim, TY, RICOH
