Newbie: Plextor 708A medias for dummies


Perhaps this has been covered over and over, but I haven’t been able to find any definitive answer.

So here goes…

My brand new Plextor 708A will only burn DVD+R at 2.4 speed in Nero So far I’ve only tried using Verbatim 2.4x DVD+R discs, but I read somewhere that people had no problem burning
these discs at higher speeds.

I’ve tried turning powerrec off, but nothing changes. I can still only select 2.4x.

One of my questions is this: If I buy another DVD+R media like the TDK+R 4x, will Nero allow me to select 8x as my burning speed? (right now I only see that damn 2.4 in the drop down box)?

Second question: Eventhough it might be stupid to try is there no way to force Nero (or another DVD burning program) into burning my DVD discs at higher speeds - you know, leave it to the user to choose like with CD’s?

Last qquestion: In case I’m told to go find another media, which one would you recommend? (besides the ones on Plextor’s good-list :slight_smile: Cheapest DVD+R media still capable of doing 8x and cheapest DVD+RW media still capable of doing 4x is what I’ looking for.

Thats all folk. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to read this and perhaps even answer.

Best regards,
