Hi All! I have recently encountered something which is quickly turning into a problem for me. I am doing/trying to do full, uncompressed backups of my DVDs to Double Layer and/or Dual Layer disks. I am using Nero 188.8.131.52 writing to a Benq 1655, either Verbatim or Ritek disks (I have both). The issue I am having is that with the newer 8x disks, I seem to have gone into the coaster business because I cannot set the write/burn speed in Nero, it is set (and grayed out) at maximum. Last night I made three, lovely looking coasters out of 8x media before I grabbed one of my few 2.4x media I have left and got a successful burn. This is going to become more of an issue as the 2.4x media fades into the past and becomes unavailable. This is not an issue with DVD+/-R disks, I have full speed control over them, only the DLs. I am seriously considering learning to knit so I can edge these disks in yarn and give them away as Christmas presents this year! Any suggestions, comments or even rude noises would be appreciated!
