I’m not quite sure what’s happening here, but my DW1650 (unlike my 1655) will sometimes produce good burns and sometimes produce very poor burns with Yuden000 T02 I bought at rima.
Here are my settings:
solidburn enabled for supported and unsupported media
booktype to DVD-ROM
They are exactly the same settings I’m using on my DW1655, except for the firmware of course (BCGB). The 1655 gives very consistent burns. Both drives are in the same computer and the 1650 is set to master while the 1655 is set to slave.
I initially didn’t get a good burn and I thought it was because the drive was “learning” the media, so I gave it a few more chances and burns seemed to improve for a moment, but then it got worse again–especially the very last burn I made.
I’ve placed the scans in the order that I burned them for convenience. It doesn’t make sense why burns would get better, then worse, and back and forth. Also, the spikes around 3.7 - 3.8 GB seem to be a defect in the my batch (TG000041) because every single disc that I’ve burned has that spike and it can sometimes account for 100 total PIF–or more.
I would be extremely grateful if anyone had any ideas on how I can improve or at at the very least, have consistent burns with my 1650.
