I know this question is media related, but would like some feedback specifically from Liteon 812 and 832 users.
Got my hands on a 50 spindle of Ritek +R 8X (R03) media. I’m finding in both drives, when burning @ 8x, I’ll be burning near perfect copies one minute and then absolutely shocking quality the next burn. At 4x consistently good on both drives. I’ve tried several different write strategies and all same story. Problems seem to arise/decline suddenly at any point from around 5% into the scan (eg. Pi & PIF rising instantly from great burn to 1200 & 300 respectively and continuing for a while and then dropping off just as suddenly).
Has anyone else had these problems with Ritek R03 @ 8x? Do you think I’ve just been unlucky and got a bad batch?
