Hi, this might be too noob of a question, but I just bought at 100pk of TY from www.allmediaoutlet.com and they seem to be stuck burning at 12x.
I’m using a Sony DRU-500a with the latest firmware (2.0G I think) and the drive is supposed to be able to burn at 24x
I’ve been using the drive for months now and the only other time this happened was with a batch of TDK CMC discs.
I use the latest version of Nero 6 (xxx.23 I think)
Is this just an incompatability of drive and this batch of discs? I’ve tried quite a number of discs and this seems to affect the whole bunch.
Does this affect the longevity of the data? Is this an indication of the retailer selling not so great media?
Nero infotool confirms that the discs are TY. Unfortunately I don’t have another drive to test the speed (my other drive is a 4x :))
Do you guys have any advice on so called “unbranded” Ritek/Arita media? eg: http://www.dvcentury.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=70-648-001+[FREE+SHIPPING]
Are these as good as the TDK ones?
