Sometimes I get the same but it is a media issue.
Thanks, reassuring you have this too, though mine does it all the time. What dvd+r media do you find works at single speed, or is it temperamental across all dvd+r? I'm using Verbatim mcc/003, which I thought were good. And actually some verbatim discs did play at single speed and no longer do it, seems inconsistent. The same discs work fine on a consumer dvd player.
Anyway NEC reads both SL DVD-ROM and -/+ R media at the same speed.
I don't have many SL DVD-ROM, but tried one and yes it does the same thing, the drive spins fast. So only proper DL DVD-ROM plays at single speed for sure? I'm really after the slow quiet spinning of DL DVD-ROM, but in a DVD+R. Any DVD+R media you would recommend do this?
Appreciate your help.
