I’m actually seeing this behaviour with my TYG01 4x -R discs. I’m trying to burn a full disc of data (over 4 gigs). So far I’ve wasted about 8 of them with my 811s. I’ve tried different firmwares and other measures, to no avail… Honestly, just look at that scan. The last part of the disc is completely unreadable.
I’m wondering if I just got a bad batch of TY media? How common is that? But the thing is, the Ritek -R media I’ve got also spikes near the end of a full disc, though not as badly (disc can still be read). Could it be my drive is just flakey?
I’m thinking of just picking up an 812s or a 1213s. I don’t have the luxury of waiting a month or longer for the 1613 to come out… What should I do?
