I'm trying to burn some data onto a DVD-R disk in an NEC-1300A drive.
The media is off low quality (as is the drive!) and burning at 4 speed
gives me coaster after coaster. But grwoisofs seems to ignore my
attempts to burn at 1x or 2x speed. Burning at 1-speed onto quality
DVD-RW media works fine. Should I expect growisofs to ignore my speed
override? I have tried "speed=1", "speed=1.0", "speed=", etc. Help!
Well, help until my quality media arrives, anyway!
Did you try whether cdrecord-ProDVD will allow you to set the speed?
I can see that this *might* help determine whether the drive or the
software is at fault.
But the "free" version of cdrecord-ProDVD only burns 1G of data
(according to the docs) which is less than I need to burn. Also, I spend
far a painfully large amount of my work time doing product support for
closed source projects. Respectfully, I don't see why I should spend my
free time doing support & testing for yours, as I will learn nothing,
get paid nothing and have no guarantee anyone but you will benefit. So
I'll stick with dvd+rw-tools if that's OK.
