Been having some trouble with DW1650 making coasters and generally doing burns on known good media substandard to what I’m used to on the DW1640 so decided to create this thread. However, as fate would have it the DW1650 decided to make a liar out of me and behave itself for the first time during these tests, never the less I’ve posted the results as I thought they might be of interest to others comparing the two drives.
Both burners in same machine on seperate IDE channels.
Data burnt is identical image file.
Burn is @12x with SolidBurn on for known media. SolidBurn ie learning strategy has been used on this media (MCC 004) for more than 5 burns on each drive. All discs from same spindle.
