[QUOTE=criminal;2148112]Hello i got some verbatims 2.4x there all work fine but if i buy these http://svp.co.uk/product/verbatim_8x_full_face_printable_double_layer_dvd_r_verbati115 Verbatims will there work on my drive SONY DVD RW DW-D22A BYS because the 2.4x ones did buy these discs are 8x so will these work on my drive[/QUOTE]
I’m afraid not. This drive is too “old”.
The only Verbatim/MKM dual layer media code supported by this drive is MKM 001 [see the part highlighted in yellow]. The other media codes are for media that you will never see branded as Verbatim, and are strongly discouraged [highlighted in green]. Notice that the 8x Verbatim media code, MKM 003, is NOT one of those other codes.
Also, as you can see, all the dual layer discs supported by your drive are only supported at 2.4x. If you were to use MKM 003 in this drive, the drive would use a default strategy and write at a slow 2.4x, for which MKM 003 was NOT developed.
You’re better off sticking with MKM 001 [2.4x rated Verbatim] until you get your new drive installed.
The Pioneer DVR-116 WILL support the 8x Verbatim discs well, however.
