This is my first post on this forum. I already learnt quite a lot as a non-posting visitor, but now I decided to make a posting. Reason: my BTC 1008 IDE that causes me problems.
If I burn DVD’s (+R) with them at 4 speed with media code RICOHJPN R01 (002) I get this kind of figures when testing:
PIE Average: 297.11
PIE Max: 2597
PIE Total: 1008984
PIF Average: 4.58
PIF Max: 179
PIF Total: 15568
(got this on a recently burned and tested DVD).
The critical borders of PIE 280 and PIF 4 are exceeded with large areas.
I guess I better don’t delete the data on the DVD from my hard drive yet…
I also have this range of figures for INFOME, also for 4 speed. At 8 speed I keep getting fixation errors in NERO (184.108.40.206)
I don’t write DVD’s that often, so I don’t have a big record of experiences on this, but given your knowledge of BTC and burning in general + the numbers I give here, can you tell me what’s causing these problems: the drive or the disks?
This might be a n00b question, but I’m eager to learn
Thanks in advance for your help
