I am trying to copy a DVD-video disc, read from a Sony DVD player, on to DVD +R discs in a Liteon DVD player/burner. When using Verbatim 4Gb 12x discs, the copying is fine, - with the disc being read/written at 8x speed. But I then used some Phillips 4Gb 12x discs, and the transfer is at 2x speed, with one disc not beig verified. Is it possible to have one brand of discs being perfectly OK to use in a particular DVD reader/writer, and another brand of discs NBG. Or is it just that the pack of Phillips discs is no good for some other reason?
Thanks skidzy and eedcam. By changing to TDK 4Gb 16x DVD +R discs I have been able to write at 16x! Clearly, then, different makes of discs suit the DVD reader/writer better than others. I use DVD +R discs simply because I had a stack of them and they seem to have worked in the past.
So looks like I shall stick with TDK discs on my setup.
