Need 8x DVD+R DL media? Heck no! You can write to Verbatim's 2.4x DVD+R DL media at 8x.
Sorry.. still in the process of checking Ritek, Ricoh, etc. No idea if they work at 8x yet. I kinda doubt it though.
This has gotta be one of the oddest writing methods I've seen. It writes at 8x only during the last third of the first layer.
I'm not really sure what NEC is doing here. You're not really saving any time by writing at 8x. In fact, its slower than most drives that write at 6x. Hopefully the performance is better with true 8x DVD+R DL media.
Like the ND-3520A, the book type of DVD+R DL media is automatically set to DVD-ROM.
Writing quality tests coming up...
