It is a true 832S drive.
I should also update I managed to burn two discs with sucess but the quality of the burns are worse then I was getting previously to this problem with the same media.
First one I read the drive light changing orange could mean information isn't getting to the burner fast enough to burn so I dropped the speed down from 8x to 6x and it actually finished the burn this time.
Doing a Kprobe scan with this though gave me PI Max of about 480 (Was 100 previously) and PI max around 12 (was 4-5 previously)
The discs played without any errors though but I still don't like the quality of that.
Second burn I changed the write strategies for the media from Fujifilm03 which they are to Taiyo Yuden TYG02 which I head improves quality for Fujifilm03 discs.
I tried burning at 8x though after doing this and it finished the burn instead of hanging at 100% but still got the quality of the first one with PI of around 450 and PIFs at around 11.
Still really unsure of what else I can try , open to any suggestions.
If I can't figure it out I'll probably order a new BenQ , NEC or LG Drive on Monday.
