My Pioneer BDR-206D has failed not even 2 years old (won't read dvd's faster than 8X even though will write at 12X and 16X), so I bought a new BDR-208D.
I have tried both Nero DiscSpeed 11 and Opti Drive Control 1.70, but both only show a 2X write on BD-R SL, but Imgburn 188.8.131.52 shows that I can burn upto 10X, the speed that my Falcon/TDK's are rated for.
Q1. Which software should I believe?
Q2. If only ImgBurn is reporting true, how do I test this new drive?
Q3. Are there any sample files I can download from some website to try to burn and read?
