Bad Burner?

vbimport

#1

1 year old Lite-on 52/24/52 drive.

  • Discs have thousands of C2 errors between 55-70 mins when burnt on the same drive.
  • Errors show up too when read on other drives.
  • Discs burnt on other drives show up with C2 errors on this drive between 55-70 mins but other drives test fine.

Is my drive bad? Any, way to solve the issue? Why don’t I get errors in other places?

Thanks

I edited your post for profanity. Please don’t use such language on the forums, it’s rude.

Have you tried different media?


#3

My apologies for the language!

Yes, I’ve tried both Prodisc and Ritek discs!

The behaviour you’ve mentioned here is normal for some batches of Prodisc media - they sucks. Ritek should be ok though.

I would try a third type (preferrably verbatim or TY etc) of media before saying for sure that the writer was bad.

Also make sure you have the latest 6S0F firmware

I’ve only tried 3-4 prodisc. I’ve gone though about 20 Ritek now with the problems! I’ve got the latest firmware, maybe i should downgrade?

i had the same exactly problem with smartbuy/prodisk cd’s. Check your drive with Taiyo Yuden Proffessional Gold Ultra, it’s one of the best media, and it costs about 0.30-0.32euro bulk. You can after check older firmwares.
