from Walmart. Alright this type of media is best burned at 16x not 24x!!!
I have a Liteon sohw-832s with firmware CG5J and Omnipatcher 2.4.3 with recommended tweaks and Nero Express 184.108.40.206 bundled . At 16x the drive did not speed up during the burn but at 24x it did speed up about 1/3 way through like it would on a dvd burn strategy (rather strange but ok). When I looked at the 24x burned disc I saw good burn up until where it started at higher speed then it definitely changed. It almost looked like it didn't burn anything, very faint on burn. Now the first time I burned at 24x I got good results seen here on first screen (I never used this type of disc before, just bought these today). But after erasing with either quick or full I was getting stuff like on second and third screen, all burned at 24x. The fourth screen is at 16x burned.
All these screens are from one disc of series burned 4 times with a 656 Meg size ISO image. The kprobe read speed is at 40x which is the maximum of drive. The reason I chose this is: since all drives read any disc at their max speed, I see no reason to test at lower speed due to that fact. If the disc can't stand up to a backup/reinstall at drive's max speed, what good is it? Seriously, how can a newbie tell the drive to slow down on purpose when restoring backups?
