Hi, new to the board so please be nice. Hope I’ve included all the info. needed to help troubleshoot the problem.
I bought the dvd+r ritek from newegg recently and I’ve burned a few discs but all of them are averaging over 1000. I have 2 movies and 4 data discs and all are over 1000 PI on kprobe.
Lite-on 811S, hsok f/w, I have successfully burned a few dvd+r with this burner before so I’m convinced that it’s not the hardware. I’m trying to see if the culprit is the media.
A couple of questions –
Does it matter that I have 1000 PI for data files? Actually, they’re anime avi files that I’m not planning to play on a dvd player. Would it still effect playback and longevity of the files?
Does it matter if my source files are from a drive other than the C: drive? My source files are from a slave drive.
How should I connect up my dvd drive on my ide? I have my HD1 and HD2 on IDE1 and DVDR and CDROM on IDE2 respectively, does it matter?
I was running a few programs in the background when I was burning the files, would that affect the quality of the burn?
I ran kprobe on the source dvd and the max point was 121 with an avg. of about 53.
Anything else I should do to rule out to determine whether the media is the reason why I’m getting the horrible results?
Any help is much much appreciated!
