I’ve never posted before, just been a lurker.
Any thoughts on this problem? I’m trying 1 more media test (buying some verbatim tomorrow) and then I guess give up and purchase a new drive unless someone has any ideas?
It’s a fairly new S182M. I just started worrying about quality due to some problems i was having and I’m sad to say my quality has apparently been horrible since day 1 I tested one of my oldest DVDs and it looks the same quality wise as freshly burned ones.
It’s a sh-s182m/bebn h/w: a ver.m Dec 2006
I’ve tried the burner in 2 very different systems so pretty sure it isn’t the rig.
I’ve tried SB03, SB03 freaks edition, and SB04.
I’ve tried burning at 4x,8x,12x,16x.
Media i’ve tried is the spindle I had, plus some discs from 2 different friends (all TDK oddly enough)
