I just picked up a spindle of the Sony-branded DVD-R. Unfortunately, this newer pack is not the same media as the Sony DVD-Rs of old: This pack is now just RiTEK-made media with RiTEK codes (in this case, RITEKF1) with the Sony label on them. The DVD+R, likewise, is coded RITEK F16. The SONY 16D1 and SONY D21 codes have now all but disappeared.
And I did try setting my main LG Blu-ray burner to burn at a labeled 1x speed in IMGburn. This one defaulted to a 4x write speed, and gave me a warning (on MCC 03RG20) that the burner supports burns only at 8x, 12x or 16x speed. I will try again with my other working burners.
