Does Nero lock DVD write speeds @ media's rated speed?

Postby dmbfan36_23 on Mon Sep 15, 2003 10:35 am

I have a Sony DRU500A running 2.0F (which supports 4x DVD+/-R burning)... I've got a bunch of Verbatim 2.4x DVD+Rs & a few Memorex 2.4x + and - R discs... When I try to burn a new DVD the compilation window in Nero 6 doesn't display anyting but 2.4x for burn speeds... the drop down doesn't include a 4x option.... Seeing as I still have like 40 blank DVDs I haven't bought any 4x media yet, just curious if this is the expected behavior or not? I was hoping to try a 4x burn on some of the Verbatim discs....

That seems correct. I have never been able to burn at any speed other than the rated speed of a disk...except when I upgraded to the Plextor PX-708a...but only then with the approved media that Plextor has written into it's firmware. That is where the lock is...not with Nero. The drive's firmware knows and regulates.

Please don't double post. YOu already asked this in the DVD Recorder section of the forum.
