Error peaks w/ LTR-48125W(the real one)

Hi guys...

at the moment I'm looking for high quality media for
my new 48x LiteOn recorder.
The best media I tested till now is Philips/Ritek (24x certified).
32x P-CAV with 0 error in Nero CD-Speed quality check is no prob.

But sometimes there are one or two high peaks, ca. 1500-2000err,
in the range of 25-40mins.

The rest of the CDR is perfect, even in the area of 74min+!!

IMHO this is a (firmware?) bug of the 48x writer...

What do you think about it? Do you noticed that issue, too?

thanks in advance

Have you ruled out the slowdown after the first errors? After a few errors most drives will slow don and when that happens errors can diminish markedly or dispappear altogether.

My lite-ON LTD-163 usually shows errors starting around the 50 minute mark, the then error rate drops or stops altogether while the drive continues the read at a slower speed.

If I set my read speed at 40X instead of 48X disks with errors at 48X often read without errors.

HTH.

Taiyo Yuden 40X media or Fuji 32X (made by TY) available @ BestBuy writes OK and blazes all the way through. I’m guessing media related. I doubt it’s firmware or hardware.

If you are planning on buying media, you might want to wait though if you can, sounds like Mitsui, Ritek and Imation will have 48X media out in a week or so.

I do find it amazing that people can’t seem to understand that burning CD’s at a speed higher than they are rated for produces errors. Those ratings are there for a reason. You burn faster than a CDR’s rated speed, there’s a greater probability you will have errors on the disc.

But there is a big problem with the speed rating…
I got three CDRs, 1st. “Platinum/40x rated”, 2nd “Philips/32x rated”
and the last one “Octron/24x rated”…
Now, all three CDR are the same! Produced by Ritek:

This Disc is designed for CD-RW/COMBO Drive Only.
Disc Type, Material = CD-R, Phthalocyanine
ATIP Lead-in = 97m 15s 17f
Norminal Capacity = 702.83MB (79m 59s 73f)
Disc Manufacturer maybe = RiTEK,JS
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 48X

And it’s kinda strange. The 24x and even the 40x rated CDRs
can only be written @ 24x with no errors.
The Philips 32x can take 32x with no errors.

So it ain’t possible to burn at 40x to the “pseudo 40xers”

@83bj60:
Yeah, I know that SMART-X related slowdowns of the LiteOn
drives. But the NEC accelrated back to full speed after the
error peak…

WTF?!?!?

It seems that Philips is bullshiting their customers, too.
The 24x, the 32x and the 40x CDRs are all the same!!

–> Ritek, Dye-Type 7, exactly the same ATIP

All of em can be burned at 32x.
At 40x the disc is fu**ed. :slight_smile:

This pisses me off, man.
