Write speed set to 2.4 but burns at 4


Recommended Posts

I'm burning dual layer discs, and using Verbatim DVD+R DL (MKM-003-000) as recommended. I've also set the write speed to 2.4, again as recommended.

When I started with the first burn, the following appeared in the log:

W 12:01:04 Write Speed Miscompare! - Wanted: 3,324 KB/s (2.4x), Got: 5,540 KB/s (4x)
W 12:01:04 The drive only supports writing these discs at 4x, 8x.

Should I worry about that or can I carry on?

I wouldn't worry.  The MKM-003's apparently only have Write Descriptors for 4x minimum.  If you want to burn at 2.4x, MKM-002, which I am guessing would be the 4x maximum write speed discs, might write at 2.4x, but definitely MKM-001, which I am guessing would be the 2.4x discs, would.


I only ever worry if the Verify fails or returns read errors.  And I always write at 8x and have only ever had 1 disc die on me later after it burned and played correctly that wasn't down to not using MKM discs.
