who still has a 5 series (40125/48125) liteon huh? probably in the trash right?
I had a newer Khypermedia (Benq) 48/24/48 burner in my other pc and decided to put it in this pc alongside my 40125s liteon to test some new 48x TY Fuji cdrs.
Now i've read that C1/C2 testing should be done in the same drive as the one that burns the discs being tested. But I don't see why.......
I burned a fuji disc at 16x speed in both the Liteon and the Benq.
Then I tested both discs in the Liteon for c1/c2.
Here is the test for a Benq burn at 16x speed, then read from the liteon.
Here is the test for a Liteon burn at 16x speed, then read in the liteon.... and it isn't even the whole 700mb. I'd say it woulda hit 30000+ c1 had it been a full burn.
The conclusion is a no brainer right? With 10x more c1, my Liteon blows!
What sucks even more is that I've been thinking that this Liteon was good this whole time. I've been burning hundreds of cd's with relatively high c1 rates and weird burn marks in the dye at certain speeds (though they are all still readable currently, but who knows 3 years from now).
About 1.5 years ago, everyone was hyping this Liteon drive. :Z :Z :a
