1008IM @ Rev. 0557 problems

#1

I bought a 50 pack of Ritek R03 DVD+R which were burning fine at 8X with revision 0256.

Well I saw the media compatability list at BTC.com increased with revision 0557, so I updated my firmware to it.

Now I can only burn my R03 discs at 4X! I used to be able to burn them at 1x,2x,4x,6x,8x.

Now it shows 2x, and 4x.

Ive gone back to firmeare 0256, but that didnt help.

Sugestions?

Were you able to go to V0256 from V0557 directly?

You might try going back to V0156, and then upgrade to V0256 and check the results.

Yes, I was able to go from 557 to 0256 and vice-versa. I will try to go down to 0156 then up to 0256.

Thanks for the help.

The only version that works with 8X is 0156!

0256,0357,0457,0557 all do not work with R03 media at 8x!

Sad!

Bump, maybe Marco can help?

They found ritek r03 revision 001 to be to low quality for 8x speed.

And I have to agree with them - the quality varies to much with this media.

Ditto- Thats what i have seen now too. Who are you referring to when you say “they”?
