NEC 3520A - DVD+-R media labeled 8x, burnt at 16x

Has anyone successfully burnt media labeled as 8x at 16x speed?

In that case, which brands have you used?


#2

To be more precise, I’m wondering if the Ritek Go5 8x can be burnt at 16x


#3

Don’t count on it.
Using modd’d fw, you may get 12x… luck of the draw.

Only very high quality 8x media is recommended to burn at higher speeds like TY DVD+R from FujiFilm. But I prefer the higher quality at 12x or 8x speeds, saving a minute vs lower quality.

For your convenience… Although it’s not Ritek… but Taiyo Yuden, Fuji Branded… (8 speeds)

The first graph is a dvd+r burned at 8 speed… took 9.45 min.

The second graph is a dvd+r burned at 16 speed… took 5.35 to write + lead out = 6.01 (where you see the PIF’s getting more numerous… it’s writing at 10 speed)

Both were scanned at 8 speed, ECC 1…

I think… everyone can see… that you 'd better write at rated speed if you want nice graphs :wink: but I think both are acceptable…

The only thing I care about is the PIF not being higher than 4 if possible

@devhda. Don’t believe RitekG05 would give very good results @16x VeryBadBoy and thetramp are right, if you wan’t to burn @16x use TY and Verbatim media and even this media almost always gives better results at 12x. Here is a scan I did with MXL RG03 @16x which is 8x rated DVD-R.http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=956681&postcount=170 Not great results!!

I can burn 8X rated Sony and Maxell discs at 16X, but i think I get better quality results at a maximum of 12X burn, so I won’t overspeed more than I feel necessary.


#8

@everyone… is there any reason why I have such high PIE at the start when the burningprocess is going at 4x speed?

I don’t see this with other peoples…

cheers

Yo-

I burn a lot of Ritek G05 - and let me tell you that you are SO much better off letting it burn at 8x - just like the firmware lets it burn-
