Question about Pioneer CD & DVD Burners
I have a DVD recorder Pioneer DVR-520H.
DVD's 16x are written at 4x, and also some 8x are written at 4x.
do you know if there are dvd brands that are written at 8x?
do you know if there is the possibility to update the firmware? in the Pioneer Internet site there is not a firmaware available for this machine.
thanks in advance for helping me
The write speed of your machine is 4x. It will only write at 4x no matter how fast your DVD blank is. When your write at a slower speed, you get a better quality DVD picture.
