Hi 1st post.
I recently purchased a Pioneer DVR-K16 slimline 8x DVD Burner installed on my HP Compaq nx9010. Drive works OK but I am seeing a wide variation in write quality for different media.
After burning certain media and testing using Plextools I have seen a lot of discs with large areas of high PI errors (between 600 and 800 errors) but only in certain zones, perhaps speed dependant. Media I have had problems with include
Maxell 002 DVD+R
MCC 003 DVD+R
CMC MAG E01 DVD+R(this seems to be the worse)
Other media I have had no problems with
All media was written at 8X.
Basically I was wondering if people have had similar problems with the same media, perhaps give me an idea of media to avoid and also if anybody has had good results with different media then tell me about those as well so I can cherrypick the media that I buy.
