OK, I'm struggling to find disks other than the brand that the burner is 
unhappy with - new supply coming tomorrow - but assuming I can find one, what 
command do you recommend to get the udf burn?  I should also say that this 
burner is not so new, and on the same-model burner that I have used a lot I 
always use slow speed burning in k3b, so if it's possible to put a speed 
limiter in, I would prefer to.
