Hello everyone !
I recently wanted to go back to my childhood an started doing some retrogaming on Playstation 1 and 2.
Since most of my discs are seriously scratched, I got my hands on modchipped consoles and I’m trying to do the best burned discs since these console are really picky when it comes to read burned media.
I decided to buy a Lite-On Premium DVD Writer (firmware NV9U) as I tought it would be a really good drive but…
For CD-R, I use Verbatim DataLifePlus AZO 52x. I can only burn them at 16x, 24x and 32x. At 16x I get a lot of problems (Audio skipping and FMV Stutter like crazy). It seems the best is 32x but I still get a little audio skip here and there so I suppose the laser is still seriously stressed.
For DVD-R, I use Verbatim AZO 16x (MCC03RG20 made in Taiwan) but it constantly fail whathever the speed (6x,8x,12x,16x). I always end up with unreadable coasters with quality scan at 0 and PIE and PIF in crazy values (especially the last 30% of the disc). I don’t think the discs are bad since I can burn them fine in a older Samsung SH-S223F at 4x (but it’s starting to get serious problems with tray mecanism and CD-R burning does not seems that good.)
I’d like to replace it with a drive known for high CD-R quality (PSone is more important to me) but I have no idea what is the best current option. Do I have to go for a Pioneer Blu-Ray writer (despite I won’t burn any BR) ?
Here is some model I can get right now in Belgium:
- Pioneer DVR-S21WBK
- Asus DRW-24D5MT
- Liteon IHAS124-14
- Hitachi-LG GH24NSD5
- Samsung SH-224GB
- Asus BC-12D2HT
- Asus BW-16D1HT
- Pioneer BDR-212DBK
Thank you guys and sorry if my english is not perfect. Your help would be so great !
