Sorry for my first post which i composed in German. …I was so angered about my burner…
So, I will try to write it again. Now in English
Foremost: Hello to all people here in this forum,
I’m a new member, and my first thread her is already a sad one. I own a BenQ DW1620 with firmware B7W9 (without riplock).
After checking some recently burned DVDs with Nero speed, i noticed the bad quality. Ok, maybe the volumes are not so good… so i went into the store today and bought new Verbatim DVDs. VERY EXPENSIVE !! TOP, 16x certified. Har har har… All burns I have done so far with them looked like the burn displayed in the picture below. Very BAD results, especially the PI errors.
You are my last hope. Please help me to solve this disaster.
I have tried so far:
Nero [PI Errors beginning from 200 !!!]
CDBurnerXP Pro [much less PI Errors than Nero, but still to many. => See Picture (burned by CDBurnerXP)]
Burner separately on secondary bus as master
Burner sure in UDMA2 !
Firmware tested: [B7T9, B7W9, B7L9, P3.6 Philips. Each with and without riplock]
Hard disc separately on primary bus as master in UDMA5
Nothing has helped so far.
Please help me with this crap.
PS: I searched the whole forum, and tried everything i have found, but nothing helps so far.
PPS: Harddisk is in UDMA-5 mode (only drive on primary bus)
PPPS: I use round UDMA-133 cables. Is it possible that this causes the PI errors ??? Are flat cables better ?
And, what are PI errors exactly ? Can they really be affected by Software like i discoverd with NERO vs. CDBurnerXP Pro ? Or was this just by chance ?
