16x DVD burns at 4x only

  1. I just bought a couple of Verbatim 16 DVD+R spindles. To my surprise, they burn only at 2.4x and 4x on a NEC 2510. This is a 8x burner.

    Burning Verbatims 8x (or Fuji's) DVD+R's have an expected 8x speed.

    Is this 4x speed, because the 16x DVD's have a limited 'speed-spectre' ?

    Since that is an older drive does it have the latest available firmware? older firmware may not have the burn strategy for newer DVD Disc's.

    No, it didn't.

    After upgrading from 2.15 to 2.18 (original NEC's) firmware, it it burning nicely @8x!

    Glad you got it sorted out and it was an easy fix.
