hi my new Pioneer DVR-112D cddvdburner does this odd thing:
when I insert a Platinum 52x CD-R (Ritek) software like Nero and Cd-speed etc. switch back from 40x to 32x writing speed as the maximum speed supported for this disc, while on my old LITE-ON cddvd burner the same disc gives a 40x maximum burning speed
a) why does my Pioneer not allow to burn this disc @ 40x while the specifications of the burner say: 40x max CD-R writing speed ?
DVD’s use MEDIACODE so that the firmware knows which brand the DVD+R is but CD’s use ATIP and when I use MediaCodeSpeedEdit to read out my pioneer firmware it doesn’t list ATIP-codes with the corresponding maximum write-speed for different brands of CD-R media (and after all this Ritek CD-R says 52x and can be burned 40x on my Lite-On burner)
b) with no firmware CD-R brands table, how can the firmware decide 32x is the fastest speed for this 52x Platinum (Ritek) CD-R ?
