    I have an HP 420i and the only media I have been able
    to burn at 8x is Verbatim Datalife Plus rated at 8x. I
    have Ritek 8x now and they will only burn at 4x even with
    my updated firmware for my 420i.

    CMC is one of the lowest grade media available and sure to give you problems especially when trying to burn at high speeds. You'd be well served to try some decent media such as Verbatim DataLifePlus, Taiyo Yuden, braded Ritek or Maxell.

    I tried ritek but it only burned at 4x with my dvd burner. Is there any other media that will burn at 8x with my hp420i. Hp media is expensive.

    thank you

    Does HP's website have a list of recommended media for your model drive?
