Same batch, but this media seems to be better that the one I burned with the 209E

Also not a highlight

The LiteOn, at least at 4x, can do better than the 209E. Vogelschreck is right in that point, the 209E isn´t so good as the 208D

Uhm, this looks awful. Never had such a bad burn with the BH16NS55 and this media, look some pictures above here

Did you try a burn with your LiteOn?

Welcome back!

Can you reduce the resolution? The screenis are to big for my little Notebook :wink:

Okay I will check those later, but it did not seem so bad for me, BIS max is 10, which is pretty low compared to my other burns if I remember correctly. But all in all I’m not particularly satisfied with the burn quality of this BH16NS55…
I may have burnt a few discs with my LiteOn, but not sure if I did a scan. Nowadays I only use that drive via a USB-SATA adapter but cannot burn like that… :confused: I will put it back into the case later. :wink:

Uhm, sorry.

I thought it was a scan with Opti Drive Control and the colors of your CDSpeed scan would be an awful result in ODC.

The 16NS55 is a good writer for BA5

Overall it´s not a bad BD-writer with the fitting media but dunno why LG changed the writing-strategy for MBIR06 to the worst write quality I ever saw with this media. The 16NS40 was besides the BU40N the best writer for MBIR06

Yeah, unfortunately Opti Drive Control doesn’t work with my LiteOn for Blu-Ray scanning anymore (CD and DVD is OK), it starts the scan but does it incredibly slow from the beginning. :confused: Maybe it is Windows 10 or my LiteOn is aging, but only Nero DiscSpeed works with lack of scan speed setting and Jitter scanning…

I had some nice results with my Liteon + MBIR06, but also burned some with my LG, maybe I will dig them up.
