been using it for a couple of months now with nice results: usually 20-30k PIE and 100-200 PIF but all of sudden a week ago i started getting much worse results, PIE between 100-200k and PIF 5k-10k
-its not the media, used same dvds from two open cakes which were used before with good results (dvd+r verbatim 16x)
-even verified the results on liteon reader (both old and new burns) with similar quality drop
-i did no firmware changes before (yesterday tried 1.08 with same results)
is the drive starting to fail?
