What kind of media is better for a NEC 3520A? DVD-R oder DVD+R? I could buy some 8x DVD-R or 16x DVD+-R (Verbatim, Sony, TY, TDK...). Which one should i choose?
If you choose media from Verbatim or TY, you can use both formats without big problems.
OK, so I will choose either TY 8x or Verbatim 16x. I am using the newest official firmware (3.07). Will my NEC be able to do quality burns with current (2007) 16x media?
Latest f/w = Latest Media, and as chef said, If you choose media from Verbatim or TY, you can use both formats without big problems.
With may own experiences with 3 different NEC drive over 5 years the NEC drive are more favorable with +R rather than -R but again this my personal opinion.
Finally I got some 16x Panasonic DVD-R (TYG03) which unfortunately had a lot of very fine scratches on the record side. Is this scan still good?
It is at acceptable level, I don't anticipate any problem in playback of it.
Disk works fine. Thanks.
