Just got the LG 4160B media recommendations?

Postby supraman215 on Mon Jan 03, 2005 1:31 pm

I just got this burner and have been learning a lot about it over the past couple days. I purchased 16x ridata media from newegg, this media will only write at 4x and after writing it the drive was unable to read it. I found out that other people have had the same problem with the same drive. So I did more research and found a list on cdrinfo about what media works with the drive and at what speed.

Does anyone else have a list of what DVD media they have used and had success with in this drive? I also have Verbatim 8x and they burn at 12x. I was thinking of just getting more of them. Any other recomendations? I'm looking for stuff that will burn at 8x or higher. Thanks.

I acutally read part of your review on several drives, which is what lead me to buy that drive. I just didn't read that page, whops. lol. Thank you though. I'm going to keep track of that. Thanks.
