I am using Samsung 308 B CDRW/DVD combodrive (8X:4X:32X:8Xdvd)

The new CDRWs ( for High Speed Drive only)are seemingly not compatible with my drive.It is not possible to burn, erase ,or format the CDRWs on my drive.

The local vendors say that henceforth only this type of media will be available.
Is there any solution to use these media on my drive?

Even if you could persuade it, I doubt that it would be reliable.

Only real choice is to find a supplier who will ship internationally, and stock up on 1-4x media.

The only thing I would say... unbranded, so you don't know what's in them

The will quote for international, but the selection is poor and pricey

HP or Imation - they are in India, but the shipping options may be limited.

Have you tried if you can fix it with a firmware upgrade since highspeed disc's are supposed to be writable at 4x.
About online stores.
The problem is how good are these my experience is that any CD-RW not made by mistubishi(which will still make 1-4x cdrw's untill the end of the year and probally longer) or Ricoh isn't really ussable.
Since all the others are quite problematic after arround 20 rewrites.

Is the 4x of a 4-10x the same as the 4x of a 1-4x though??

At it's most simplistic, the recording layer of highspeed media is said to be thinner, so it can respond faster and with less energy input.

RW media is rarely a good choice for anything - it's problems:
1. More compatibility troubles than CD-R
2. Tendency to "fade"
3. Often fails to meet the number of rewrites suggested as possible
4. Slower than CD-R to write - and often slower to read as well

If using for UDF packet, you also add the inherent frailty of that format as well.

Using CD-R and multisession, you can use the same CD several times until full, while maintaining better read compatibility than any packet solution.
