Questions on Pioneer A05/105 –
I've recently orderd a Cendyne 4x DVD burner (supposedly a rebadged Pioneer A05/105).
While searching the different DVDR vendors, I see many selling media that purports to burn at 2x on Pioneer A04. I've read that until new firmware is released, the Pioneer A05 will not burn many of the cheaper medias at 2x (Princo, Riteks, etc).
I've seen many threads recommending Verbatim Media for backups, but stubborn as I am, I'm inclinded to go with the cheapest media I can find if it will reliably play on my PS2.
Can anyone suggest a brand/vendor for such media (<$1.50/disk) or does anyone know where I should look for hacked firmware which will make my new A05 burn better/faster with such media?
I'm still waiting on shipment of my burner, and have ordered some sample packs of various media (Princo, Ritek, DVDPRo Grade A, BeAll from Samsung, "High Quality", OptoDisc etc). Hopefully I'll find the right media for this drive, but before I start ordering in bulk, I'm wondering if there's some people here who've already done the reseach and can point me in the right direction.
