I just got a PX-755A , FW upd. to 1.02. I at first used the Drive with default settings, Autostrategy set to “Auto Selection” and PoweRec on. I am using MCC 004 (Verbatim 16x DVD+R). I was burning at 16x when a lot of odd things happened. The drive took forever to get going (I guess autostrategy created the profile during that time). It stopped a few times briefly enroute, to change write speed (I suppose that PoweRec kicked in) and ended the burn on a reduced speed, 8x or 12x, I don’t recall.
What I don’t understand is this: The MCC 004 is recommended media. It’s data should be in the firmware. Why does it create a profile on “auto selection”? According to the Plextools, it should only create a new strategy, if “no suitable strategy is found”.
If I do disable auto strategy completely, which strategy will be used? And how can I keep autostrategy on, but not use it for the MCC 004? Just deselect the mcc 004 strategy active check mark?
Thanks for help or a link, where this is explained.
