NEC ND-2500a and 1x burning

#1

Does any one know why 1x burning is not available for me with Nero 6.3.1.6?

I am using the NEC ND-2500a burner with Herrie’s stock 1.06 firmware modified only for Ritek RG04 discs. (See link below)

http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?threadid=92923

I have tried using the following media types:

Imation DVD-R (CMC MAG. AF1) 4x
Ritek DVD-R (RITEKG04) 4x
Generic DVD-R (MXL RG01) 2x

I can burn at 4x & 2x w/ the Imations
I can burn at 8x, 6x, 4x & 2x w/ the Riteks
I can burn at only 2x with the Generics

Why is 1x not availble to me with any of these media types?

I really want to try burning the Generics at 1x and cannot understand why it is not an option.

Thanks

Asked and answered many times.
Most burners no longer support 1x burning, but do 2x instead.
If your media is unable to be burned at 2x, my suggestion would be to get better media. I think the Pioneers still support 1x, I don’t know of any others that do.

Why is 1x speed available before I put the media in the drive? If it was soley the fact that the NEC 2500a does not burn at 1x you wouldn’t think 1x would ever appear as an option.

1x only disappears once I put the media in the drive.

There’s no 1x writing strategy for DVD-R media available. There’s simply no space for it! 1x is for DVD-RW!
