BTW, there were two separate posts for two totally separate problems (one of which now seems to be deleted).
The problem in this posting is regarding Memorex media compatability with my drive.
My other problem (the recently deleted one) is with Nero 6 Ultimate, and how it is detecting the maximum writing speed (seemingly incorrectly). I will need to fix this problem separately, regardless of finding good recording media. This problem may be related to an incorrect setup or configuration problem on my PC. Until that gets fixed, I won't be able to utilize any media type over 2x.
I still need an answer on that one ... I guess I'll repost it in a day or two so that there is some seperation from this problem.
PS: I did a repost here in the DVD section, since MP3Mogul properly notified me that I had mistakenly posted first in a CD-R area, and should post here instead.
