I recently decided to purchase some Taiyo Yuden media, -R. I bought some certified 8x media even though my burner can only support 4x writing. I was going to get the 4x media, but it was over twice the price. I have a few questions:
1 - will my burner write well on these DVD-Rs? I’ve upgraded to the latest firmware, so it should support this media.
2 - Should I attempt to upgrade my firmware to the 832s one?
3 - Would I just be better off buying a new LG SuperMulti Drive for ~$60 CDN?
If possible I’d like to avoid buying a new drive as I’ve got a lot of other expenses coming up. I figure that it should burn fine since I’ve got the upgraded firmware, but the warning label on the package has got me a tad worried. I don’t want to waste any of these discs by making coasters.
