DVD Recording Tests
- Writing Performance
The RICOH MP5316DA supports DVD-R/RW and DVD+R/RW writing. The maximum supported speed for DVD±R is 16X CAV and 4X CLV
for DVD±RW media. You can see the full range of supported speeds on
the first page of this review. Nero Burning Rom's reported speeds are shown below.
As you can see, there are not that many DVD-R media that could be burned
at 16X, and only one (TDK) is 16X certified.
There are not many DVD+R media that could be burned at the maximum 16X speed.Out
of the 16X certified media, Verbatim and the TDK media were burned at their
maximum speed. The Philips 16X media would not burn at more than 8x, and
CMC 16X media no more than 4X!!
