Hi, I'm sorry if this wasn't supposed to be posted here, but i figured that I'm a newbie and odds are this is a dumb question
I just bought some DVD+R DL's from the CDfreaks webshop, they are Verbatim's with MID ( ? ) MKM 003.
I just burned 3 DVD's (thought the first one was just crappy) and they all end up in lousy quality..
The discs were burnt at 8x and one at 6x, but this didn't really matter.
Reading them at 5x instead of max made a small improvement, but 50% is waay to low as far as i know..
I added some screens from driveSpeed so you know what i mean.
I also updated the firmware to the latest version, i havent burned a new disc with this new firmware yet, i'm a bit hesitant to use up another disc if someone says it's not gonna matter...
I'm new to the whole Dual Layer stuff, and my 7170 always did a perfect job on my single layer discs.. with quality numbers always being mid-90's (Plextor Taiyo Yuden T03's and Verbatim MCC ...)
Does anyone here know if i'm doing something wrong or whatever else can cause this?
