I could do with some expert advice here.
I have a 1600 flashed to a 1620. I tried burning a video onto Infiniti Professional DVD+R DL (Ritek D01). The burn went well. However in my Sony the disc would freeze at a number of different points. This was done with B7K9 or B7L9 flash.
I tried the same movie again using B7T9 flash. This time the movie played okay until the end (around 6-7GB) where is broke and froze and stuttered for about 30secs.
I tried again, using B7M9 flash. Haven’t had a chance to check it in full.
I used nero DVD-CD speed tool to check the quality of each.
For layer 1 they all have values <20 for PI errors, and <10 for PI failures. On layer2 is where they all differed.
for the PI errors
B7K9 produced values of <300, the peak block being around the 5.5-7G of 250.
B7T9 produced values of >400, the peak block being around the 6.5-7G of 450
B7M9 produced values of <310, the peak block being around 6.5-7G of 250-300.
The same for PI Failures, the T9 peaked ar 36, the K9 around 20, the M9 <20.
Now do you guys think this is media related or flash related or drive related?
I notice that on the same charts all show a dip in read speed at the early (200M) mark, and the layer change.
