I’m using DVD Decrypter version 188.8.131.52 to burn Taiyo Yuden DVD+R 8X (YUDEN000 T02, TG000040) on a Pioneer DVR-111D (firmware 1.29).
I’d like to know if I’ve set up DVD Decrypter right;
I’ve put Write Speed at 8X, since I’m using 8X media.
The interface is SPTI - Microsoft.
The Buffer Size is 20 MB.
I’ve ticked the Verify box.
Is the buffer size allright, or should it be larger/smaller? (RAM is 1 GB, and I’ve got plenty of space on the hard drive)
Is there any need to set the write speed at another value?
Should I enable “SpeedRead DVD (Plextor)” or use the “Set Read Speed” function, or neither (does it even matter)?
Since I don’t own a LiteOn recorder (or similar) I haven’t used KProbe or Nero DVD Speed, because the information probably wouldn’t be accurate if I should test the burned discs using the DVR-111D.
I’ve noticed something strange while burning:
After writing the “Lead-In”, the burner accelerates and stops at a constant speed of 6.0X for awhile. When it has burned 400 000 000 bytes, it goes back to 0.0X, then almost immediately accelerates to 8.0X. It maintains a varied speed of between 7.9X and 8.1X for the duration of the burning process (except for the end, where it varies between 7.7X and 7.9X).
Is this normal behaviour?
Allright, these were all the questions I have for now.
Please let me know if there are some important details I’ve forgotten to bring up, or if there are some specific options in DVD Decrypter that I need to change…
Take care, y’all!
