I just got these TYG01 coded silver-top DVD-R’s from Shop4Tech.com, they’re the ‘value’ series which I got for fairly cheap. However, the results aren’t very satisfying. Although the PIF and jitter readings are not bad, but the PIE is always above 30. I see other users having PIE under 10 for this media, how are you guys able to achieve this?
I’m using Windows XP Pro, which I newly installed with burst rate of 24. I unplugged my CDRW drive from the shared IDE cable, and the BenQ is hooked up on Secondary IDE (I think, I’m not very good with this - the blue connector one is hooked up to my HD).
I tried to do a strategy change using B7U9 firmware, but it doesn’t work at all. When I tried it using B7T9 firmware with TYG02 and MCC###2 strategies at 8x, the results become a bit worse.
Can someone provide me with a way to produce better burns?
