    Well your original post stated that the maxwells worked fine
    At least thats how I understood it?
    So my bad if I misunderstood that..
    Anyway if it was burning perfect before and now all of a sudden it doesn't, and you haven't changed a thing then it could be your writer is going bad. Have you tried updating the firmware for that drive?

    Have you checked on a firmware update for your drive? Also cheap/poor quality media will never burn right at 8X. The cheap stuff needs burned as slow as possible and it will still be a guess as to how many will work. Most members suggest 4x as the max for a dvd movie burn. Some get away with 8x or higher but the blanks have to be the best grade.

    maxwell used to work have over 150 movies backed up max speed 4x

    but now all that works is sony dvdrw at 2.4x

    maxwell and or memorex burn all the way atleast thats what the software says

    but when you turn it over it has lines like a vynal record only play for 20 min or so before they lock up
