I have awful experience with samsung. So mine must be an old device (2 years old pc with winxp home)
which model of samsung are you talking about?
and I didn’t burn with imgburn on that pc. Now I’m converted to imgburn + verbatim and I’m willing to try again.
reports will follow.
The Sammies I use currently, are a Dell-rebadge of the 223F (TS-H653F) - this is the drive I used on the suspect 8x DL discs, a “proper” 223F, a 203N (all SATA drives), and an external SE-S084C. I also have a couple of IDE Samsung 182D’s, which IMO perform even better than the 223x’s, but sadly they’re rare as hen’s teeth now.
Out of curiosity, what’s the model of the Samsung you mention in your WinXP PC?
ImgBurn + Verbies should do excellently. If not then there’s more that needs investigating I think. One thing I found, though: with the GH22NS50, 8x seems to be the sweet spot for the Verbies I have here.
