Can I Force A 1x DVD Burn?

I know it's not the DVD Player because I have other SVCD's on CD-R that play just fine on it. My PS2 is old and reads any media best at 1x. There are many possibilities. Get the Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden 16x disks. news

This indeed leads me to believe that it's a media compatibility problem. I have other SVCD's on CD-R that play just fine on it. When i select 1x the average and the current burn rate are indicated to be 6-9x. Mine only goes down to 4x.

This is somehow a bad info for all owner of "old" 4x burner because media that go out of the production units now are 4x - 16x. 8x - 24x are Quote 22nd Apr 200300:49 #11 gmatov View Profile View Forum Posts Banned Join DateNov 2002 LocationPgh Area All, I find it very hard to beleive that the burners have a ID: TT0G2 i think, or something similar.

  • Boulder24th August 2002, 10:07It says in the drive specs that the writing speed may vary between 8x and 32x.

Try a different brand of blank CDs such as Verbatim. Quote 23rd Apr 200304:59 #16 joedotcom View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message Member Join DateApr 2003 Thanks for all the replies - ok here's MY verdict after burning about The tracks on cdr over 80min are very weak. So - I just want to burn it slower, to see if that helps.

However, if I use a CD-R it messes up. Sounds as you don't use the log window. No, create an account now. https://forum.beyond3d.com/threads/the-slowest-speed-i-can-burn-dvds-at-is-4x-but-i-want-slower-how.41799/ Beware of bogus media though, use Newegg or other reputable merchants.

pps: run one of the dvd's through this program tell us what it says http://www.kvipu.com/CDCheck/ does it just happen with dvd's or cdr's as well #5 Davros, Feb 24, 2008 It uses default values and that is the reason why some media are incompatible with some burner and vice-versa ? thanks sparskter View Public Profile Send a private message to sparskter Find all posts by sparskter Someday, 12:01 PM admin Site Staff / Ad Manager Join Date: Dec 2002 Posts: Is there any way to force my writer to go lower to see if it solves the problem?

At least seems logical to me. Why not the program you are using? If the power did not adjust down, if you went from 48 to 8, hey, you just might melt the disk. 1/6 the speed, 6 times the laser intensity per blast. I'm just a fellow Toast-user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may provide.

But now I have already bought a brand new burner.

However, on the Maxell CD-R it's a different problem. I don't remember, however, which versions this is available in. If using NoScript, simply whitelist digitalFAQ.com.

You may also find if your writer supports any kind of "on the fly" strategy creation, it will deal better with variable media than the standard firmware strategies.

I don't want to have to tell you to read them! Nero is 100x better than Adaptec crap. CryptKeeper24th September 2002, 23:09I've got an LG 8320B Nero version 5.5.8.2 allows for the drive to write at 4x and even at 2x speed don't know if 5.5.9.0 or above will Quote 2nd Jan 200414:57 #23 cpmusick View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message Member Join DateDec 2003 Yeah that's possible.

But if you specify your make and model of DVD player, maybe someone who owns this could direct you. Any help is great!Thanks,Josh G5 2.5GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.2) Posted on Aug 18, 2009 1:54 PM Reply I have this question too Q: Burn Speeds for DVD 1x Hide Question I just noticed that the CD-R writing speed is always at least 8x although I select a lower value in any burn program I've tried (CDRDAO, BlindWrite, CloneCD). I'm not sure if those were from the same pack of CD's or not.

it's a shot in the dark. It'll list the supported speeds in the righthand window when you're in the write mode. Sounds as you don't use the log window.

I've had my one for 4 years, it's a Sony CD-RW 24/2/4 and although it takes ages to burn CDs it still works like new. It is also possible your burner was in PIO mode rather than DMA mode and that may have accounted for the burn speed. To me, writing the CD at a lower speed might result in more reliable playback. I left-clicked on Disk Drives instead of DVD Drives >.> <.< .

You can't. It never wants to write at 1x speed for me even when i set it. I've tried Maxell and Great Quality (GQ) CD-R's. If the firmware/drive doesn't support a lower speed, it's not possible to force it to burn slower.

Didn't realise how recent the query was or I would have left it for you guys.1. I can email it is you send me your email address. You can verify to yours too. There may have been a bottleneck getting data to the burner from the hard drive causing the burn rate to decrease.

You can *ask* as drive to burn at any speed you like but it'll just ignore you and go with the closest speed that it actually supports.
