I bought a Pioneer 108 and have burned about 25 Ritek G04-R white top printable and 15 shiny silver topped disks also -R(No problems no bad burns). Then I picked up a 100 pack of Ritek G04+R Ridata Branded disks at newegg. The first one burned really weird the drive buffer in Nero fluctuated maddly between 20% and 98% and the disk took over 1/2 hour to burn. After three disks like this I gave up and decided to dump them and continue burning my other two hundred packs of white topped and shiny. Now the problem! Now no matter what which disk I put in if it is a G04 it burns at 2x and the hard drive buffer (the 2mb on drive one) fluctuates like crazy. Now I have been doing this for years, so it is clear that somehow because the +R disks were bad either Nero or the drive has decided that all disks tagged with a G04 are to be burned in the fashion that they are being burned in. So how do I get the blasted thing to forget the bad +R media and go back to burning at 4x. P.S. I already reflashed the firmware. HELP!
