Just had some TRAXDATA 8x DVD+R’s delivered from rambox & am quite frankly annoyed as hell.
I bought these disks after reading a review that they could happily be burnt @ 12X using the pioneer 109 (unfortunatly i cant find the review i read or i would b givin them some nasty ass msg’s).
However starting on the 1.09 firmware moving up thru the 1.17 to the 1.40 firmwares, nero infotool & vso instector show the maximum burning speed as 4x (& only 2.4x using my optorite dd201 f/w 2.60)
As you can imagine this is DAMN annoying when you purchase ‘8X’ media & it wont burn on ur ‘16X’ drive above 4X :a
Just warning all you fellow unfortunate pioneer 109 owners out there against getting these disks.
Think i’ll b going for either Verbatim (16x) Full Face Printable DVD+R in Spindle Tubs of 50 (nearly double the price i paid for traxdata) or Taiyo Yuden (8x) Printable DVD+R in Heavy Duty Spindle Tubs of 100 (even more expencive ) from SVP Communications
