    hi guys,
    just purchased a new LG 12x dual layered burner and was wondering which media is going to be the one to use.I see 8x plus discs are available what about the -r discs.I can use either as this is plus and minus .

    Thanks in advance

    You should be able to use both and although i normally use the minus media i have been getting better results with plus media with the 8 speed disc's.Although the 8 speed single layer media is on the market i do not believe the media is as reliable as the 4 speed at present.The 4 speed has been around along time now and is now well established but this was the same as when they introduced it along side 2 speed.The media will get better over the comming months and then start all over again with the DL media.

    Even though i have a DL writer i have not tried any DL media yet due to price and availability.Please let me know when you try it how you find it.
    Thanks
