I'm glad anybody here can burn Verbatim 8x DVD+R discs with the 107D. I 'm really glad for you. But I can't. I'm already annoying people here and there with my problem, but I won't be quiet until it is solved. Let's come to the point.
I have the 107D, originally with original 1.09 firmware, now with patched 1.18 firmware. I bought these Verbatim DVD-R 8x and DVD+R 8x . My system CAN handle that writing speeds (please don't tell me to enable DMA and check HDD speeds: such settings ar just OK and I could already write and rewrite a TDK 4x DVD+RW at 4x without a glitch while doing a couple other things with my HDD's).
So why my 107D cannot burn them any faster than the slowest speed, that is 1x for the DVD-R's and 2,4x for the DVD+R's?
At the very beginning of the burning process, DVDDecrypter 18.104.22.168 writes
W 01:37:52 [2:1:0] PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-107D 1.18 (M:) (SCSI) - Selected Write Speed: 11.080 KB/s (8x)
W 01:37:52 [2:1:0] PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-107D 1.18 (M:) (SCSI) - Actual Write Speed: 1.385 KB/s (1x)
Is there any way to understand if the discs I bought are fake, even when DVDDecrypter reports the following info about media?
