I have a 7260S that I got almost new on ebay. I intend to do lots of backups. Can somebody please tell me which Taiyo Yuden media is the best for this drive, TYG02 or TYG03? Also at which speed to burn for the best results? I ain’t very good at reading those graph results…

And are there different firmwares, should I look into upgrading it?

I’ve had good luck with TYG03 media on this drive; 8x gives the best results for me. I have not yet tried it with +R media. I’m using firmware version 1.03, with no complaints.

Is there a way to change booktype in the 7250H? Imgburn won´t do it, nero also show no options
