    Then I'd say you probably have a drive problem. Perhaps it is defective.

    it might be yes, but i don't know how to find out/determine if it is
    defecive. princo media 4x and ritek 4x burn what to me seems to be 2x,
    around 35-40 minutes for the entire burn. using nero, dvddecryptor and
    dvdxcopy. i bought all these dvd's from www.rima.com the 4x media in their
    50 pack which is 2 25 spindles, and a ritex 25 pack spindle. all 4x is what
    i bought yet they all take 40 minutes ot burn an entire disc.

    how can i contact sony to send in the drive for replacement? i am not sure
    where my retail box is and all of those papers.i did buy it from newegg.com.

    take care guys.

    What are the other specs of your machine? It's possible the burner is
    burning at 4x, but your machine can't keep up with the transfer rate
    required.

    That's a good point. If the burn-proof features are kicking in, it could
    slow burning substantially.

    I have seen a few burners over the last few months like this (usually
    Sony, Liteon or LG) which are very particular with the media used. It
    sounds like you are only burning at 2x which fits in with my experience.

    It is easy enough to check - get yourself a couple of higher quality
    brandname discs and see how they go. My best guess would be that they
    burn at the full 4 speed. (ie, a full DVD in around 15 mins.)

    Actually ritek is usually considered very good quality as far as blank
    media go, but I could be wrong. I've burned on ritek no name DVD's at
    4x speed on that same exact burner.

    I agree - but msi mentioned both Ritek and Ritex. The problems I have
    come across have been with Ritex and Princo no-name, but only with those
    three particular drives. My Pioneer burns them at 4x with no problems
    whatsoever.

    We sometimes get the Ritex brand here in Australia - I was led to
    believe they were a cheaper line made by Ritek, but that is only heresay
    amd I have no hard evidence to back it up. They may even have been a
    clumsy attempt to fool the consumer into believing that they were Ritek.

    and i have not even heard of ritex, woah. but if it is a brand it i would
    guess would be to try to rip off the name ritek and make people think it's
    the same. only a total wild guess.

    my friend gave me 2x dvd-r tdk saying they might still be rated 4x. i dunno.
    they say 2 x on top. i will try when i get to back up another of my dvd's
    maybe later today and report back if it is a 2x dvd or 4x.

    this is weird ofr me cus dvd decryptor and nero both show the ritek i got as
    4x. weird. it just takes 35 - 40 minutes ot burn them which is 2x.
    the firmware on sony site is F and i think i have F. however can someone
    tell me how to identify the exact firmware i have on my sony DRU-510?

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!
    I have 1.0F firmware. DMA on it says. So when I get to back up a dvd, i'll
    try these TDK 2x ones and see, if only 2x burn I'll try Sony 4x DVD-R and
    get a 3 pack since it's for a test only.
