This disc is used and have some scratches. The Lite won´t read it faster than max. 8x, the Asus SDRW-08D2S and a Liteon DS8A8SH won´t read it complete. Don´t use Notebook-drives often, are it really so weak readers?

I have seen this only on my 15 year old QSI SBW-242 and Panasonic UJDA740 DVD-ROM/CD-RW drives, they don’t like some DL discs.

With Notebook DVD writers I never had a problem.

The drives are used are not that new, but it should be able to read this media.

My laptop BU20N has a better error correction than the massive BE14NU40 (2014). Maybe because the lens has never been cleaned? (never opened it).

The TSST LB23 from 2012 is also excellent, and is sometimes the only drive to read several dead sectors.

Other OPU, other chipsets, other FW, other behaviour when reading bad sectors.

Better than expected.

Confusing thing, sold as 2,4x, but LiteOn want to burn 8x. First I would use Samsung SH-224DB, but it only offer 4x-speed and I´m not sure whther it is a standard-strategy

Nice, never had D02

Should be rare, dunno CMCs strategy. D01 I had long time ago and then D04, now you can only get D03

BTW, RivIsion should be known as seller of B- and C-Grade discs, had in the past some with CMC and MCC code 8also by CMC?), worked mostly without bigger problems but had a big vary in quality, often PIE/PIF-clusters
