[QUOTE=Bob;2128431]Depends on the brand and actual maker of the discs. I burn 16x media at 12x to start with and then scan to see how they look. Sometimes i burn them at 16x if they scan good enough. Your LG will not do a quality scan though so you can check by running a TRT=Transfer Rate Test using Nero CD-DVD Speed.
I don’t think you can burn at 24x for DVD’s. What burner to you have and can you see what the MID=Media ID is for those blanks you have using Nero CD-DVD Speed? Here is a link to download the newest free Nero CD-DVD Speed > http://cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroCDSpeed_47716.zip in case you don’t already have it.
I have found it’s best to specify a burn speed than to just use Max or Recommended.[/QUOTE]
Sorry but I am just not that technical. I do not use Nero (even though it was supplied on a CD with my LG GSA E40L) and am not into doing scans.
Except for the disaster I had in the very beginning with the TDK +R DL 8.5, I have not had any problems with my LG or any media that I have used since. I completely view every DVD I have burned and have not had any coasters.
For SL, I was using Panasonic DVD-R media rated at 8x and used a burn speed of 4x. But I just ran out of them and the price of the Panies went up so I thought I would try another brand. I am sure these +R will work out. I was just concerned about them rated at 16x. When I get them, I will try burning one at 8x and post here if I have any problems.
