this is the image of the real burn time with 18x speed taken 9 mins
(the next burn finished under 8 mins)
It doesn’t matter what you set Nero to, in this case 8 to 9 minutes is the average time for an [B]8X[/B] burn. These discs are probably a bad match for your burner. Pop a blank in ImgBurn and see what speeds it shows as available.
As an example, using TYG02 -R 8X discs, in my Lite-on, ImgBurn shows:
Supported Write Speeds: 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x (takes about 8 minutes for a burn)
In my Pioneer 115D it shows:
Supported Write Speeds: 2x, 4x, 6x, 8x, 12x (about a minute less)
Note the scans with the 12x burn from the the Pioneer are excellent, a hair better than 8X in the Lite-on.
Some Opto 16X +R’s I had would only only show as 6x tops, in the Lite-on.
