    i purchased a tub of verbatim 2x dvd-r discs from cd-rmedia.co.uk, and they do not write at 2x speed.

    i have a toshiba 5002 writer using nero to burn, nero says it is writing at 2x, but it takes nearly an hour to burn, when i use the jewel cased verbatim dvd-r 2x discs it burns at 2x in under 30 mins, why does the spindle pack take nearly an hour to burn?

    anybody please help.

    verbatim 2x dvd-r spindle (15 pack)

    I got 2 out of 5 to burn properly before I get errors, using Nero 5.5.10 and a sony dru 500ax (firmware 2f)...

    anyone else having problems with verbatim dvd-rs?

    I noticed a big price drop on these verbatim dvd-r at amazon.com. They were 48 bucks for 15, now they're 33 bucks for 15.

    Are these things potential coasters?

    I got the same problem when I used 1.30 and 1.31 firmware for my AO4. But after I upgraded it to 1.33, my RecordNowMax can write this disk with 2X. I did not try Nero with 1.33 firmware.

    Hope this helps.

    Some of the spindle DVDs that are supposed to be 2x simply aren't.

    i now have a pioneer drive which cost only £151
    delivered from www.svponline.com.

    and these verbatim discs burn at 2x on this writer flawlessly, must be the toshiba writers firmware i guess.

    athough i have noticed that some verbatim discs are mcc, and some are cmc.(dye info)

    go for the mcc ones.
