nec 3520a writes at 4x on Ricoh 16x discs & 12x on bulqpaq 8x disc

have had a few errors (freeze) if i use the 8x disc at 12x but no errors at 8x

any way i can get it to 16 on 16 discs.

Update to firmware v3.04 and the Ricoh DVD+R 16x will burn at 16x.

Yes indeed.
The orginal stock NEC firmware doesn’t support this media at all, so it uses the default write strategy of 4X
3.04 firmware as jan70 says will burn those media at upto 16X
