Greetings! I have been burning DVD media since the first ±R writers came on the market, but I have never attempted Dual Layer before today. I have just acquired a Plextor PX-810SA and a 25-pack of Verbatim DVD+R DL discs.
What confuses me though, is the write speeds listed by ImgBurn. When a blank disc is inserted, ImgBurn shows the following:
Supported Write Speeds: 2.4x, 4x, 6x, 8x
The package says that the discs only support 2.4x. The media identifier is MKM-001-00
The PX-810 supports 18x write speeds for single layer media and 10x for double layer media, and is supposedly able to reliably burn 16x media at 18x.
2.4x media at 8x seems like a bit of a stretch, though... especially considering the price for DL media.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
