just got my first 25 pack of these http://store.yahoo.com/supermediastore/dvd-r-ritek.html
ritek and record now max is still only letting me burn at 1x with the max setting. i have the latest firmware for the ao5. i thought these disks would be detected as 2x? is it safe to manually up the speed to 2x? one other thing burnproof was pretty reliable with cdrw's allowing you to still use the comp while burning what about the ao5. can i still surf the web and email while burning ?
