Helllo. I've had many problems with my writer. sony 22A.
I purchased a large number of Ritek disks, and all of them look like this:
Can anybody explain what can be the problem? Is it the media?
Anyway, so far, 3 disks were able to read (but very long seeking time), but i don't wa't to jepordize safety of my data. So i goona use them for less critical content - like movies.
I was just thinking: is it possible to reflash my drive w/ another firmware and by this solve this problem? or increase the quality?
Another thing: if there's notheing i can do about it, is it possible to write NOT from beginning of the disk? (since bad area is at the very start)? Maybe i should put some first dummy file and then write my data? if so , how large?
And how do i know, which file Nero writes first.
Thanks anyone who can help.
