HI guys, new to the forum please be gentle!
OK I buy dvdr media from www.svp.co.uk a very good company, I first bought datawrite red mach 4, Ive a pioneer a110d 16x writer and a phillips 16x one too, I burn alot. The datawrite discs would only burn at 4x on these writers despite the firmware upgrade so I chose bulkpaq smileys, out of 50 discs about 2 coasters, got more, less costeres, bought more and more, no probs, Ordered 600, svp sent daatwrite classic yellow 16x, some worked, some didnt, today I sent them back and had the original 600 smiley ones, however after testing around 50, 5 work.
I get the following error messages:
1 - power calibration error
2 - burn process failed at 16x (or 12x or 8x)
3 - cannot perform end of disc
4 - command sequence error
Ive opened my pc, tested cables, changed cables to no avail, am I to assume this is just incredibly bad luck to have a BIG duff batch, or something else?
Would be grateful for any advice. Cheers
