So I got a Pioneer DVR-109 but... –
I don't really know how to read these graphs from Nero's CD-DVD Speed tool.
Here's two output from the "Create Data Disc" function.
The first one we have is the RITEK G04:
Graph 1 (RitekG04)
The second one we have is the Taiyo Yuden "YUDEN000 T02":
Graph 2 (YUDEN000 T02)
Graph 3 (YUDEN000 T02-transfer test)
I don't really know how to read these. I think the green line is what burning speed it had over time, but what's the yellow? Can anyone explain it to me?
Plus, for those of you who have Pioneer DVR-109 drives or experts with reading these graphs, what is the best speed I should be burning at with these medias?

Yellow is for RPM.
Ritek G04 is not supported at higher speed than 4x so that is why it is burned at 4x constantly in CLV mode. Yuden's are designed for higher speed and so those can be burnt at 12x unfortunatelly just in Z-CLV mode. Unfortunatelly this drive is still based on Z-CLV writting method, which is SLOW. With the current firmware there are only a FEW (let's say a very limited number of) disks that can be written at 16x. Also the writting quality is not the best, but as always Pioneer will improve that with future firmware releases.
I have a dvr-108. I get flawless burns at 8x using taiyo yuden 8x dvd-r media (fuji film).
I guess you can try to push the envelope and try burning them at 16x... but you should think about the wear and tear on your ps2 laser.
10 min isn't *that* long to wait for a game (less if the image isn't ~4GB). I'd stick with that till new firmware + 16x rated media is available.
