LDW411S drive & Verbatim 8X DVD-R Media


I am unable to burn at 4x using the Verbatim 8X DVD-R media recently purchased from Best Buy. Nero only gives me the option to record at 1x speed!! Very annoying.

My HP DVD+R media burns at 4x with no problem, so I was just curious, as this is the first time I’ve had media that would not burn at 4x.


BTW, the discs identify as:

Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD-R:MCC 02RG20 ]

Disc Type : [DVD-R]
Manufacturer ID : [MCC 02RG20 ]
Manufacturer Name : [Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.]
Disc Application Code : [Unrestricted Use : Consumer Purpose]
Recording Speeds : [1x , 2x , 4x] (8x Cannot Be Detected)
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,298,496 Sectors = 4,489.3MB = 4.38GB (4.71GB)]

Well it looks like I answered my own question! I should have flashed the drive prior to posting in here, my apologies. A flash to the latest firmware from lite on’s website did the trick!!!

My first clue should have been in the description of the flash “Recognize more media”… :wink:
