I am using a liteon 1633sb, and just recently noticed that the drive is using variable write speed for my Sony (Japan) DVD-R 16x discs, if I use anything higher than 4x. There will be variable write speed shades on the disc. It’s somewhat annoying to see the different shades.
So is this good for the data on the disc in the long run?
(I never experienced this with DVD+R discs.)
For my movie backups, I use DVD Decrypter. Data, I use nero.
