I hope I’ll get ya outta the fog a little bit.
Unlike its predecessor (which I’ve tested), the Teac CDW-548e is dropping it’s burn speed downto 16x instead of 32x
I’ve run into the same problem but I’ve tested the burner using 34 differend types of CD-R and CD-RW Media. All TDK-labeled Media is writable @ the highest speed (I wrote @ 48X without problems). But Media produced by Plasmon Data Systems seems not to be “liked” by the burner.
I used to burn on Creation CD-R but I now use TDK Media which is very reliable and almost as cheap as creation.
So far, so good.
The Phenomenon of underspeeding is actually reversed when it comes to CD-RW. i’ve actually managed to write @ 12X on 8x-10x CD-RW Media, and @ 16X on 12X CD-RW. Successfully!
So I say the teac CDW-548e is a great Burning unit, not to mention the Mount Rainier Support and the FlextraLink technology embedded
