DVD-R Burn Speed Update 2

Well, with a lot more burns with my new drive arrangement, it is clear that the Optodisc 16x DVD-Rs aren't really all they are cracked up to be.

As I had noted that, the burn on seemingly three different speed zones. The first is a 4-6x zone, then an ~8x zone, followed by the ~12x zone. The maximum that the Pioneer drive will allow me to set for the media.

But, I've also been burning an extra copy of stuff recently using Fujifilm 8x DVD-Rs....the Optodisc being thermal printable and having nice labels, while the Fujifilm discs being silkscreened and labeled with a Sharpie...so the Optodisc ones being set aside as archival storage of the data, while the Fujifilm discs being the ones I'll be usually immediately.

Anyways, the Fujifilm discs burn all the way through at ~8x.

I do have some Taiyo Yuden 16x DVD-Rs, which Pioneer recognized as 16x from the very beginning. Though I haven't tried burning anything on these since the change. Perhaps something to try, should I find the excuse to 'waste' a disc.

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
