Plextor PX-4012TA
Firmware: 1.02

Fuji/TY 80min 40x Max Burn speed 40x

Unbranded/TY 80min 32x Max Burn Speed 32x



Intersting findings though. Even with the unbranded TY 32x only burning at 32x it was only 6 Sec slower than the Fuji 40x writing at 40x writing the same 699mb file. :D

699mb @ 32x 3:39 - TY Unbranded 32x
699mb @ 40x 3:33 - Fuji /TY 40x


Plextor 24x Burning the same 699mb file:

699mb @ 24x 4:09 TY Unbranded 32x

Because nobody has sent me information on Yamaha drives and their media compatability, nor do I have access to a Yamaha drive. Feel free to be the first to submit info about Yamaha drives, Buddha. :)

I personally only own a TDK and a Sony CD Burner, so I don't have access to a Yamaha drive either. I wanted information about the Yamaha drives because I'm planning on purchasing a new CD Burner within the next 1-2 months and wanted to see what drives are compatible with which media.

Oh man, I had to brush up on German to view that page. :P Ich bin kapitän von dem unterseeboot!

That is a very resourceful web page, Scour, but it only lists tests done in CD Speed for each type of media. From what I can tell, the author of the web page did not list the maximum successful burn speed without errors. For example, just because CD Speed shows a CD-R can handle 32X doesn't necessarily mean that the burner will burn the CD-R at 32X with no errors.

I just bought a spindle of 100 memorex 40x cdr's for my Liteon 48. They appear identical to the 24x Fugis I have and will burn at a maximum of 40 with smart burn enabled. I am running the vso6 firmware. They are TY of course, they were on sale at Target for 19.88 and they had to get out a new box for me, it said made in Japan all over it.
I was hoping they had the 48x ones in but 40 was it, the ad showed a 48x spindle.
Another store had some 16x ones made in India, I passed on those ;)

Yes, i know this. I don´t believe, that the LiteOn burn all media at the speed error-free, but the Yamaha was tested with the OWSC on. And the tests from CDR-Labs and CDR-Info shows, that all burned media not have any C2-Errors with OWSC

Aye, plus Sony drives use their own firmware updates, unlike Lite-On who uses their own.

Huh, I guess there is Imation media made by Taiyo Yuden, a nice bloke over at cdrfreaks.com verified that he recorded successfully at 40X on 32X rated Imation/TY media. These tests were doen with the LG GCE-8400B.

Imation made by TY?

That might explain a bit why the high speed spindles by Imation are not as cheap as before.

Howcome when I use the HP/TY 24X and Memorex/TY 32X cdrs, the max speed I was able to get from Cdspeed is only 32X?? On the list you posted, these two cdrs should be able to burn at 40X on my Plexwriter 40X drive. Also, I assume that this list was compiled from using the write test with Cdspeed??

Actually, no, all the tests above are of actual burns, not simulated burns like Nero CD Speed does. With an actual burn, you can verify afterward how much of the data is error-free; with Nero CD Speed you cannot do this because it only simulates the burn sequence. This is also why I didn't add Scour's post to the media list above, because all the media tested at that site was done only with CD Speed and was not done with actual burns so that the amount of errors could be verified.

My advice to you, ryus, try an actual burn at 40X on the Memorex/TY and HP/TY media and see if it burns properly at that speed with zero errors. Then you'll know for sure. :)

Wizard I just tested another of the 24X White topped Riteks and at 40X it produced damaged sectors so i would change my opinon to 32X to be on the safe side mate. It seems they are not very consistant with quality.
