After burning the first half of my 50 pcs cakebox of 8x TDK DVD-R (TTG02) getting good results, I got a few coasters now. The behaviour of the PX716 was suddenly somewhat strange. It needs 10 mins for the lead-in before burning the track. I did 2 burns with Nero and 2 burns with DVDDecrypter (ISO). All DVDs show more than 2000 PIE at the inner area.
Now I can burn again with results not so good as before, but acceptable.
Per accident I looked to the AutoStrategy Database. I was wondering that the MID (TTG02) is now part of this database. I’m pretty shure, that the database was empty after burning several TTG02 DVDs. I think that this MID belongs to the firmware based ones.
Has anyone experienced similar effects?
Is my PX716 broken?
Is the firmware internally crashed (1.04u)?
Or is the second half of the cakebox made of different media and the behaviour of the drive is normal while filling up the AutoStrategy Database?
