ok, looks like when a dvdrw drive is about to spin it’s final wheel, you’ll receive consistent rings of shadows where the continual mark of good burning used to reside. I mean, this is a telltale sign of a drive gone bad: no matter the medias you used, no matter the speed, strategy, you simply get 3 rings of shadow, kinda like the groundhog coming out of that treehole and seeing its own shadow. yes, folk, looks like we’ll be seeing 3 more months of winter, for hell hath no fury like a dvd burner that’s ran out of fire. :a
anyway, after a good 15 discs of ricohjpn r01 gone wasted over this miserable piece of crapyola drive. I wash my hands of the liteon 812S. NEC here i come!!
