Shameless self bump on the post above and the results from my DVD-R RITEKG05@12x branded 8x RIDATA.
Well, all I can provide you gurus with is the standard data xfer rate from Nero CD-DVD Speed.
Notes, the burn time was around 8 mins, recorder buffer in Nero was at 96% for most of the time but often it dropped down to around 5-7% for a short time - for a second or two. Also the sound from the drive started with a nice constant buzz but went down towards the middle and at the end of the burn.
Just got 200 of these disks (dirt cheap) and I'd really like your comments on my burns. Should I stay at the 8x or continue with the 12x burns?
