DVD writing speed on my pc.

I bought some of the verbatim dvd discs off the hot deals from staples yesterday.

I have http://www.starmount.co.uk/productversion/337.html this burner.

When I started to burn last night the nero burning options come up with only 2 options in the drop down box X2 and X4.

These are X16 discs so was hoping for that speed burning.

Does anyone have any advice or guidance as to why I cannot burn at X16.

edit. lol sy..thats what you get for asking for help and giving it at the same time.

You burn discs with batteries. :shock: :giggle:


I'd say thought that Nero is not reading the dye properly.

try [url]www.cdfreaks.com[/url]

Have you got any other media you can try?

often a firmware upgrade on the dvd writer sorts problems out - look on the pioneer website

Mind you, last firmware for your drive is dated 28/04/2005 so you might well have the latest anyway.

^^^ yeah should have the latest firmware. Took the advice and posted on cdfreaks as well. Not a happy chappy, got loads of burning to do and taking about 15 mins per disc at the moment at 4X, even if it went up 8X or 12X that would be better.

I have no other media to try that is over 4X. That's why I bought the 16X.

Lol I remember 2 years ago I had a 8x burner which copied dvds at 1.5x and had loads of failed burns, didnt realise it wasnt full speed until I got a newer one and updated firmware and it went from 38 minutes to burn a disc to 14 lo.

Try downloading imgburn and see what results that gets you when burning (as long as you're burning ISO's).

Quick search on google will bring it up.

I thought it was always better to burn at x4 to getting a better image burn?

Can't download at work and not online ATM at home so no go there.

On cdfreaks they reckon it's to do with the discs origin, the writer and it's firmware. if the discs id and writer are not matched in the writers firmware it defaults to a low speed.

I thought that if it said 16X on the tub and your writer was capable of 16X then it would write at that speed but apparently that's not the case.

Sadly not, although 16x is reaching maturity now and you'ld probably find a newer burner could cope. Also trying different software as suggested might be worth a try, although you might find you are stuck with 4x. Frustrating but not the end of the world...
