what are you trying to say with, "Some drives can burn Verbatim dl discs at 4x." that a dvd+r dl 4x drive can write 4x on 2.4x media? have you tried that? otherwise, I am very well aware that there are dvd+r dl 4x drives. many drives exist that can write dl 4x, but yet apparently no media.
Says Sony: "The DVD+R 16X and the DVD+R 4X Double Layered DVD medias are currently not available online at SonyStyle.com. I suggest that you contact a Sony Dealer to purchase the same."
That is a sony response to my query about dvd+rw 8x and dvd+r dl 4x. In short, I read that as media available, but not on sonly online. I have continued to question and the canned blowoff the best they can do....to confirm that you are proproblably correct.
also, phillips annonced having dvd+rw 8x media sometime back, but that appears ongoning.
these drives are not that new. what's up with this industry? again, newbie to the dvd write arena.
okay, let me change my question and ask: does anyone have any idea when we expect this media?
