I think i may have a dodgy batch of x8 full face printable tys. Heres what happens ether the disc just sit's on lead-in of starts to burn and then when the writer switch's write mode just stops and does nothing or i choose X8 and it burns at x4 instead. First i thought maybe my writer is on its way out but after 3 fail's i tryed a x8 mcc in the drive and it burnt fine first time and then also tryed a x8 ty pastel verb and that burnt staight away. Normally the burn takes about 30-45 secs to start but these printables if they do burn fine then the start times the same but when they dont burn properly they take anything from 1m30s to 2m.
OK my drive does need a defrag but if that was the case would'nt i have the same problems with all discs. Today i went to compile a data dvd with nero, 3 printables never work, first took 2 mins to start but then only burnt at X4, the second took about 1m20s to start then once it got to where the mode switchs it just sat there for another 10 mins and then i got a burn failed message, the third never even started to burn just sat there for about 5 mins so i reset, so i tried to burn the excact same thing but this time on a ty pastel and it burnt perfectly fine, started up in about 30secs and burnt clean through
What do you guys think ?? not all seem bad, some burn some dont,all discs are -R
So im thinking next time i order seen as i cant get the TY verbs anymore which never gave me a problem i may order a coupl of 25 spindle panasonics as the 10 pack spindle i had worked fine.
