I am looking to get some media and, I have found these Verbatim, that look ok. I was using some super cheap discs, and some of the discs I wrote seemed to be a little jittery in parts on play back, so I thought I would go for some slightly higher quality ones (without breaking the bank), and see if the media is the problem.
Now I am looking at these Verbatim ones, but they are 4X burn only, and I only have a 2.4X drive. On the web site for these discs, it says:
" Important Note: 4x speed DVD+R media is intended for use with 4x writers. Please contact your hardware manufacturer regarding compatibility of your non-4X DVD+R writer with high speed media."
My drive is specifically a NEC DVD+RW ND-5100A in a laptop. Can anyone help me out? Will it be ok to burn these discs at 2.4X? I don’t understand why burning them slightly slower would coaster them.
Edit: The verbatim discs are The Datalife ones? Don’t know if this helps, thanks!
