A big THNX and a question belonging to 851 and -R

#1

First - a big thanx to the great work here with all the FAQs for LiteOn…

Buying and using my LiteOn 851 I’ve had a lot of questions and things I want to know; but after reading a few hours :wink: here I still got nothing to ask :iagree:

Just only one thing I want to ask: Bevor the LiteOn i’ve had a Toshiba 2x only for -R. And I never had have some troubles by using the -R-Medias.

But know, using the same Medias with the LiteOn, I’ve results to cry for; about 60% or 70% of the written -R’s with the LiteOn I’ve tried to copy back to Harddisc gave me a CRC-Error…

Does LiteOn 851 have some problems with -R’s or is there another (known) problem ?

Thanks,

Kibu

What media are you using?


#3

Media is “Medianca” DVD-R 4.7 labeled and some unlabeled medias I don’t know where they’re coming from.

I’m just working on who to get those mediacodes and manufactors :wink:

Well, ok. :rolleyes: So I’m going to try some other DVD-R’s.
I just wondered about it, cause the Toshiba doesn’t have any problems with them. But I just accept if they’re a bad thing.

Thnx :slight_smile:

It’s a well known fact that LiteOn DVD burners do not fare well with ultra-cheap media.
GL. :smiley:

Oh, that’s a “new” fact for me - but one I will sure accept knowing it! No question. I just used the medias till today I haven’t any problems using with my tosh.

But, I’m happy with the LiteOn and even with the support you get for it watching at the userns and tools for it :slight_smile:

So, is there a tip wich medias (regarding -R and +R) are a good choice for my LiteOn-Drive ?

Thanx,

Kibu

My personal picks would be:
Taiyo Yuden (TY), Mitsubishi (MCC), Maxell (MXL), Ricoh or Ritek.
(in that order).

(Moved thread to media forum).

Ok, so just the last question for me at the moment: How can I “see” when I’m buying some medias if they are for example from Taiyo Yuden ?
Cause I don’t think it’s a brand which sales medias, cause I never saw that name belonging to DVD/R :wink:

Ok, I guess perhaps here’s a thread where the manufactors a written to which media they belong :slight_smile: I’ll make a search for… If you’ve just the “fun” I’ll be very pleased for an answer as well :slight_smile:

Puh - it’s getting really hard buying DVD-Medias :wink:

I found this page helping a little bit…
http://www.cdr-info.de/markt.php

But I’m not able to found any Taiyo-DVD-media till now :frowning:

So I decided first testing MCC :slight_smile:

Searching the Stores I did’nt find those “Slimline 5”-pack.

And, some others witch are in the database with Taiyo, the sellers told another mediacode, so I didn’t buy :wink:

But, may be that I got still blind after a few hours of searching in web for the medias so I oversea something…

But I found those:
http://www.cdr-info.de/detaildvd.php?ID=1785
so cause Ssseth told them at second place I’m quit happy now for now…

After a few days of break I’m going on searching the web :wink:
