TDK+R 8x=16x but TDK-R 8x=12x on A08XL??

Postby jgs9455 on Thu Jun 02, 2005 12:47 pm

Pioneer A08XL with 1.20b firmware
Latest Nero 6.6.0.13

TDK DVD-R=TTG02

TDK DVD+R=YUDEN000 T02

Did I do anything wrong? Or did I just get one made in Japan vs. one made in Taiwan?

No, you did nothing wrong. Those are just the speeds those discs are supported at.

Sure, if speed is important to you.

When buying media, there are a number of things you need to consider. Quality of the media, compatibility of that media with the drive you're using and compatibility of the media with DVD playes, etc.

If those discs are giving you good results and play with your various drives, then there's nothing wrong with using them.
