Using 16x on 2500

Best Buy has a good deal on Memorex 16x dvd-r. $17 for 50.

Can one successfully use 16x media on the 2500 with stock 1.6 firmware?

Thanks!


#2

Don’t see why it wouldn’t work.


#3

But only at 8x, of course.


#4

What if the 25X0 firmware does not contain write strategies for that particular media code?
I don’t think this would work.

I would suggest flashing that baby’s FW… but yeah using 16X on 2500 will yield only 8x :disagree: …so save even more and use 8x media or better yet, buy 4x media which burns at 8x using hacked fw… :iagree:

tdk 003 burnt well on my NEC 2510 @ 2f9 (supported MID). You should buy a single (jewel case ?) version of the media to test first, if possible. good quality 8x media will yield better results though.

:iagree:

2.F9 works great! I use it myself too.

Yep, just all the other guys said, update to a new firmware and they will burn good at 8x. Im using maddog 2F9 but there’s a new firmware out, 205 ( no bitsetting)
