I am about to change from a LiteOn 811s to a Pioneer ( DVR-108, bulk Version, Germany) or NEC (3500A or 3520A, bulk, Germany).
Bitsetting for single AND double-layer +R is an absolute necessity for me, I will not buy a drive, that cannot do it. Also, I want to get excellent burn quality with Verbatim media (I am going to use is Verbatim +R 16x printable, media-code is MCC004).
Reading the different posts here, for the Pioneer DVR-108 they range from
“there never will be this feature”, “it only has automated bitsetting on double-layer +R’s” up to “the piodata firmware supports this”. Quite confusing…
So, could someone please help clarifying this issue and tell me, whether I do need some additional tool to set bitsetting (like for the LiteOn drives), or do only have to check “bitsetting” in NERO or all is automated.
Or do have to switch over to the 3500/3520 to meet my criteria?
