NEC DVD burn speed

  willhay 17:42 09 Mar 04

I have just bought an nec DVD ND 2500A, I was backing up some data and noticed that it was supposed to be burning at 4x speed but in fact was only burning at 2.5x I am using Mirror DVD- discs, the DVD+ mirror discs I was using all burned at 4x speed. The writer supposed to burn at 8x speed but even with just link disabled I cannot force it to write at 8x speed any ideas why i cannot force it to write at 8x speed

All depend on media you use. I have a Liteon 811S which burn Ricoh DVD+R at 8x even the disc is rated at 4x. I am not a fun of mirror discs, tried a few Mirror +RW -RW, all of them not useable on my 811S and anothe Lapton DVD writer.

Have you got 8x discs?

  leo49 17:48 09 Mar 04

Only some 4x brands will burn at 8x.

It seems that NEC2500 can write 8x of Verbatim 4x DVD-R.

Dont have any 8x speed discs but usually with cd's you can force them to burn at whatever spped the drive is rated at with just link disabled, Is this not the case with dvd's

There is no such thing as 8x disc, you cannot find in anywhere, but some 4x discs can be brunt at 8x.

Beg to differ but 8x discs went on sale in February - there just very hard to track down at the moment.
