I have the same "spiky" disappointing results than Mr. Brownstone, on the 109 with MCC02RG20 (Verbatim Datalife PLus), would it be burnt @8x, 6x or 4x.
Sometimes spikes get as high as 900+ and I get 20-30 of them...
It's very disappointing, even more because cheap Ridiscs (RitekG04) burnt on my 109 have better PI/PO scans. And I bought the more expensive Verbatims!!
Considering Tomkolle's results with the MCC02RG20 Verbatims, could it be a media (batch) issue? Verbatims distributed in Germany would be of better manufacture...? Mmmmhhh... Go figure....
