I'm just curious about DVD write speeds. I've been having no success in burning DVD's lately and I'm wondering if the problem could be as simple as the Blank DVD's allowing burn speeds up to 8X when I should only be using blank DVD's with a burn speed maximum of 4X? Could this be a simple solution or am I dreaming? I have blown through all but one DVD of a new 10-pack of Maxell DVD+R 8X media with nothing but error problems and I've never had problems like this before. Sure I've had the odd error but nothing like this. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I can't think of any other solution at this point. Thanks!
