    I recently purchased some Maxell 8x -DVD media and tried burning them at 4X, but I am getting a lot of freezing. I know that Maxell is in the process of replacing all of the 4X media with 8X. Is there anyone else having problem burning higher speed media at a lower speed? No! I am not having any problems burning the 4X media at all, plus or minus

    I've burned some 8x Memorex at 4x & had no problems whatsoever.It may be the program you're using to copy the movie..hope that helps.

    I also have the Maxell 8x goldtops. I have not had any problems with them. I think they are great discs. The problem might be your burner, try upgrading firmware.

    No problem burning 8x media at 4x for me. I use sony + 1x-8x,verbatim data life plus +8x,maxell +8x, and kinza's maxell -8x gold tops. All my burners burning great. The standalone players? My sony will play everything. My dvd recorder and apex are still picky on my old kypermedia +8x burner and new I/O 16x burner I got this week. Those gold top-s are outperforming all those others on that I/O burner.

    6foot7, sounds like that player doesn't care for those -8x maxell's. Those maxell +8x's have been checking out as hitachi and maxell-002-00,Made in Japan.The + has been playing better on all the stand alone players I use my backups in.

    Can you give us a code on your Maxell -8x's?

    I just got back from Office Depot, They have buy a 50 pk spindle of maxell +/-/4x/8x for $35 and get 1 free. 100 discs for $35.00,pretty good price. With that low of a price,i thought they would have run out of them early in the week,buy my local store had a shi* load,lol The -4x's there should code as ritek-go4,they all had "made in taiwan" on the labels.
