Changing Write Strategy

vbimport

#1

Hi Hi,

I just bought some media (RITEK R03) but seems to be fake :a
And now somebody else said he gets much better results with other strategy! he has a benq!
But i only have a NEC, is there a way to change the strategy ? I use a nec 3520! It would be awesome if it would be possible, so i could get a bit better burns !

It doesn’t matter what you do with write strategies. If the media is fake or poor quality you will still get very poor results. Bin them and buy some good media.


#4

Thats true, but look @ http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=994688&postcount=37

he gets much better results with other strategy!

It would be nice if i could try the other strategy, even if it doesn’t work!

These are not your media though. They could be very different.
