Hi i want to buy a new dvd writer as i am not happy with the one i have which is a liteon 832s. I live in the uk so the most popular disk i come across have the ritek dye. So im looking for a writer that burns ritek disks well.

any help would be great

Thank u

Really what it comes down to is user preference and quality of the particular batch of media you get. Memorex (whic uses the Ritek dye) DVD+R are good with my 1653S, but I have made coasters out of some. Like said before, user preference and media quality are really what its about.

For Ritek DVD-R’s do NOT but a LiteON. I have a Pioneer 109 and it works okay. I usually get PIF’s of 2/3 every 100 MB or so and somtimes spikes of 5.

Check out the other forums to see what the other burners are like with Ritek.

Deffinitely either a NEC or Pioneer for G04/5 media.

Pioneer 108 with 1.18 Gradius FW
Pioneer 109 with 1.40 Fw
I use the 108 to rip @ 12x and the 109 to burn with no probs

Does anyone know if the Sony 510A with 1.1 FW was a rebadged Lite-on or a Sony build? Thanks

DRU-500A, 500AX, and 510A are Sony-designed. Before 500A, all Sony DVD writers were Ricoh. After 510A, Sony outsourced to Lite-On IT.

Thanks Kenshin,
Wow that was a quick reply! I guess I will have to carry on using the Sony DSS Drive Speed Select to speed up rips to 8x
Cheers

I was quick then because I clicked this thread to read rdgrime’s post which then was the last post of this thread, but there was your post right under his already. :slight_smile: Pure chance.

BTW, I still have DRU-500AX. It was my second Sony DVD writer. I’d like to have DRU-720A but Sony price is too high in South Korea whether it’s TV, camera, or DVD writer. :frowning:

why buy a burner around media, u should buy a burner then get better media, unless u got 1000 blanks then i can see why, but get a good burner that works good for u

i would never buy a burner for a certain kind of media

It makes perfect sense. A drive costs about the same as 3-4 spindles of media. If you can only find certain media in your area, get whatever will burn that media well. No point in getting something that will only waste media.
