Over-Burn DVD-R Media?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a registry hack or anything that will allow it?

ImgBurn gives some error message when you try to do it. It won't

even attempt to over-burn on DVD-R, but it should work in theory.

Is it a hardware issue that drives simply refuse to do it?

It's a hardware thing and should work automatically if the device supports it.

Do you know of any drives that support over-burning DVD-R? I have a BenQ

1640 and it won't even try to over-burn them. I can over-burn DVD+R to like

4650 MB with SolidBurn off. No problem. I read that no drives can over-burn

DVD-R yet. They need new firmware to allow it. CDspeed's overburning test

shows that DVD-R should over-burn even more than DVD+R.

Doesn't cdspeed simulate an overburn though? i.e. it doesn't actually write to the disc? (like 'Test Mode')

 

If any drives can do it, it would probably be mentioned over at cdfreaks.
