Hmmm, I recently purchased a Pavilion with this drive. Has anyone seen it show supported write speeds higher than 16x on any DVD+R 16x media? They claim it burns DVD+R @ 18x but I'd like to know what media they're talking about. So far I've tried Tayo Yuden, Verbatim, Ricoh, Prodisc and I always get 16x or slower.
Prodisc which has been burning great @ 16x in my 4 year old HP 640b drive only shows write speeds of 4x and 8x in this thing!! So far I'm not impressed! :sad:
