I recently upgraded two DVDs in my PC to the AD-7190 and when I found no joy trying to burn at 16x I flashed their ROMs to the most current v1.04. Still finding no 16x joy I delved further and found (through DVD Info Pro) that the Ridata DVD+Rs that are packaged as 16x do not contain an Available Write Descriptor for anything other than 4x and 6x which are what Nero allows me to burn at.
I am not familiar with troubleshooting burn-speed problems. Any dummy can flash a ROM, I proved it, but my question is does an Available Write Descriptor for 16x have to exist on the media for me to be to be able to burn at 16x? Like I mentioned, I purchased these Ridata DVD+R thinking that the big [B][I]16x
[/I][/B]meant that was their burn speed… Thank you for any advise you may be able to provide.
