    Unfortunately you will have to use Sony media or top quality media...
    Sony specifically doesn't respond to cheaper media, suxs

    Without buying the really expensive DVD-R's, try a Traxdata or Verbatim Disc. They tend to be more acceptable to burn at 4x. A good way to find out is to ask your local DVD Media supplier for a bundeled test Pack of 5 or 6 different DVD-R media all at 4x

    Try Maxell 4x too ! They work in my Sony DRU-500AX drive at 4x and they're not that expensive as verbatim ...

    Will the pioneer 105 write at 4x with cheap media?

    A05 will not burn at 4x with cheap media. You would have to hack your firmware. I prefer to get higher quality media. Currently, I am finding out if A05 will burn Ritek 4x @ 4x...

    I would keep away from NERO, only because certain versions work flawlessly, but most just don't work at all. You will successfully burn, but not be able to view it on a DVD Player. I suggest you go with RecordNow Max.

    Cheers Boriqua, you wont be far behind me im sure with your upgrade. I've ordered some Ritek G04's too, ill let you all know what the situation is with my Pioneer DVRA05. I'll also test the new Datawrite Yellow 4x Princo.

    HP DVD+R 4x discs have been working well for me with DRU500AX (2.0f)
