    For example.
    My Samsung burner hates RiDATA disk. Even though the disk are rated at 16X, and my burner is rated at 18X (yes some 16X disc will burn at 18X) I couldn't get the disk to go any faster than 4X. Other brands work just fine at full speed.

    Sometimes firmware updates will fix problems like these. But in my case it didn't help one bit.

    if u r burning iso files try DVDDecrypter or isoburnn for data mastering try ONES ( imo far better than nero)
