At one point I had 2 drives in my posession. Both I/O Magic boxed drives. Short version…one had B firmware and one had G firmware. [My friend got the one with the B firmware].
Before I shipped his off to him I flashed it with B7S9 [to give it the lastest and make sure it worked, etc]. In his drive with the B7S9 firmware I burned a Teon DVD + R [CMC Mag E01] at 4x with NO problems and a nice quality scan.
I have tried burning these same CMC Mag E01’s [same spindle] in my G7P9 drive. ALL the other media I’ve burned turns out fine [Sony D11 +R, Teon CMC MAG AE01, Memorex -R [4x - don’t recall its media desig]. I get at least 2 files on each one that can’t be read later. It reports that it burned fine, but there are errors reading back the files while verifying them.
Do I need to update my drive to B7S9 or B7T9 to be able to burn on these CMC Mag E01’s? Or is there something else wrong here?
BTW I’m getting approx 14 min burn times on ALL these media at 4x.
Other than these CMC Mag E01 problems I’ve been VERY happy with the G7P9 firmware and not really wanted to update/cross update.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
