A question about Taiyo Yuden DVDs.
I’m a newbie, and this is actually my first time burning DVDs.
I purchased a 100 pack as referenced by a Deal.mac listing:
*SupermediaStore.com offers the Taiyo Yuden 8X DVD-R Media 100-Pack for $27.99 shipped free (ends 5/7);
I purchased this 100 DVD pack. It was listed on my receipt as:
Taiyo Yuden 8X DVD-R (Value Line) Silver Thermal in Tape Wrap 100 item #dvd01x0238
-The DVDs have the following codes written on them near the spindle hole:
13A107970GB LA6 - GD000321 - 0603
Iâ€™m new to burning DVDs. I purchased the Taiyo Yuden brand because of the positive reviews and recommendations.
Iâ€™m currently using Toast Platinum 6.0.1.
When I place one of these blank DVDs it only gives me the option of 2x or 4x to burn the DVD. I called Superrmediastore.com to confirm that these DVDs were the 8x not the 4x before my purchase. Does this burn behavior suggest that they sold me the 4x DVDs instead of the 8X/
FYI, this is the DVD drive info as copied from my System Profiler:
HL-DT-ST DVD-RW GWA-4165B:
Firmware Revision: C006
Burn Support: Yes (Apple Shipped/Supported)
Cache: 2048 KB
Reads DVD: Yes
CD-Write: -R, -RW
DVD-Write: -R, -RW, +R, +RW, +R DL
Burn Underrun Protection CD: Yes

Any ideas what is going on here and why I can only burn these DVDs at 4x max?
