Just got a brand new nec2500, and i have a pile of 4x printable media, nero picks them up as 4x but at the stange of writing in the log it says its reduced to 2x speed ?? 6.0.0.23

Using firmware 1.06

DVD-R media

A lot of discs cannot be written @ full speed;…

Hopelfully a new firmware quickly…

thx for the reply,

What cheap 4x or 8x media that is printable if possible will work atm with this drive ?

BULKPAQ "ORANGE ?
BULKPAQ Printable (4x) ADVDINFO: ProdiscS03.
Datawrite 4X Princo Inkjet Printable DVD-R in tubs of 25
Printable Prodisc (4x) DVD-R in 25 disc spindle tubs

Just a note: VANGUARD is REALLY crappy media. Among the bottom 3 disc manufacturers on my list.

Going cheap may be expensive :wink:

I’ve had good luck with verbatim and maxell printable discs, a bit more expensive but worth it in my opinion.

Problary is crappy media oc-freak, but my pioneer105 picks it up.

Now Im wondering should have I spent another 20quid and gone with the pioneer107

Anyways

What cheapish media will work at the correct speed in this drive ?

Has anyone tried the following media
