I bought a SH-203N after I read the review here, because it seemed like the perfect writer. However, it doesn’t behave like it’s supposed to when I burn DVD+R DL discs at 8x.
I have tried XP32, Vista32 and Vista64. I burned with Nero8 and ImgBurn, but no matter which brand of DL discs I buy, the moment I burn @6x everything goes fine, but when I burn @8x (discs are allowed to be burned at 8x according to the label) the turn into coasters.
Normally you’d think that it’s the quality of the discs, but there seems to be a ‘jump’ in the first layer. It took me a few attempts to get the lighting correct, but I managed to take a picture of that extra ring. Again … this only happens @ 8x.
Any clues anyone?
