Now i have memorex and it is about 30 min. I made quite a few coasters , also i have been looking for update on firmware for that tosh. ,but I don’t seemto see any, any luck on your side.
As i said it should take aound 15min to write x4. Its most likely a media issue as you have pinpointed your self.
A firmware update will most probably help with media compatability. The drive is usually shipped with 1031fw, currently there is version 1033 available.
First you’ll have to check with DiscInfo which drive revision you have (A or B). Then get the corresponding firmware from here
