Question What's the write speed with todays drives?

Do the old rules still apply with Firmware patches & the new drives of today? Does the general rule of thumb, being half the rated speed of the blank disc still a good guideline? Do you burn @4X with let's say SATA drives? Hopefully you understand what I am getting at & there should be enough pros around here to get some good feedback. Let's not forget how big a part quality blank media plays as well, or does it? Any "if it plays it stays", philosophers out there?

That's hard to say. I get better burns at 8X with my Yuden 02's. Also with a good batch of Verb's 16X is good, but no lower than 12X or your PIF's skyrocket.

Granted this is with new burners.

I've done some tests with my burners at the available speeds for some DL media.

LUK posted yesterday some Verbatim -R burns at various speeds with the Pioneer 216D (the bottom of the thread).

I should be able to get the Verbatims +/- 16x up in some days.

So far it seems that you can get very good burns even at 20x speed with the right burner.

Hi Cynthia
I noticed you have a new firmware version for your Lite-On. Is it better than The YYII?

No idea. After the way to often PMA update failures I haven't used this writer much. Only use it for scanning purpose. I think it was posted over at CDFreaks in the thread for that writer.
