Since LiteON is Taiwan brand it is most likely that smartburn hasn’t got datatrack in it’s database thus providing the drive the standard powersettings.
This is rediculous. The last writer which used “standard power settings” was the Teac RS50 or whatever its exact name was, it was a 4x writer, available at about DM 1500 (or even more, don’t know exactly) in 1996 or so.
What do you think is the power calibration area for?
Nevertheless will this NOT harm the overall quality of the disc.
Then, DataTrack would be the first serious producer of 99mins discs. What do you believe are the reasons for Mitsubshi, Mutsi, Ricoh, TDK a.s.o not to produce 99mins discs? They don’t take chances on their reputation by making crap discs!
Please make some C1 scans, then put them into direct sunlight for several hours, and rescan (note that i did that with Taiyo Yuden, and the discs did not take any damage, not even a peak in C1 errors).
