I recently purchased a Nec 3500 from Newegg and some Ri-data 8x DVD+R disk. Ive been using a PLextor 708a and Pioneer 1.06 for a while so i wanted to experiment with some DL burning.
After reading a variety of post in this forum ( man what a great resource) its seems that Herries 2.17 firmware was recommened. SO i proceeded with what appear a successful flash to 2.17.
Here’s where my questions start.
Bitsetting- I read a few of the threads on bitsetting so i know the technical description but im still not grasping the practical application as it related to real world.
SO do you set bookend for SL media to make the media more compliant with your burner or the finished burn more compliant with a variety of DVD readers?
Does the same go for DL
Under what circumstances does one want to change the bitsetting.
How are you guys getting the option to overspeed media?
Example burning at 12x with 8x media!
Im using Nero 63125
My Nec wont burn the 8x Ridata DVD+R at anything but 4.
I realize these questions have probably been answered over and over again. Ive read here for a while and things just seem to run together. If anyone would take the time to answer these questions it would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. THis drive already makes me Angry because of how good it is compared to the DRU500,P-106, and Plextor 708a ive got at 1/3 the price.
