Does anyone know what speed media should be used on a Sony GX300
Or any DVD recorders will help as I am about to order a bulk pack and not sure whether it should be 4, 8, 16 speed DVD's or does it not matter.
Thanks in advance
I use 4x -R and -RW on my Pioneer 220s which work fine.
When your recording on a Recorder (unless it has a hard disk) your recording at 1x anyway so you won't see any difference between 4x or 2x.
You could maybe use 8x, I'm not sure but certainly 4x will be fine.
The advantage with using 4x rather than 2x is if you get a DVR Rom drive for your PC you can use the discs you've purchased for burning on your PC at 4x rather than 2x.
i still got quite a few x4 DVD left (which worked fine), but you should now be able to buy x8 (more suitable) for very similar price (i actually bought some x8 cheaper than x4)
Have you checked the manual for recommended makes / speeds? Pioneer have a list of makes tested at 8x write for high speed copying at time of publication.
Also there is a difference in spec between releases of DVD-R and DVD-RW which affects write speeds.
