[QUOTE=krkdnose;2294614]Can anyone recommend a newer drive for burning these?
My Benqs (1640 and 1650) and Liteon 160P6S don’t seem to like these discs at all.[/QUOTE]
Sorry bigmike7, but have to agree with negritude here . Of the drives in my sig, DH20A4P and AD-7200A were easily the best for burning Falcon DVD+R DL’s at 8X after more than a year of burning with these discs.
Take a look here http://club.cdfreaks.com/f33/falcon-8x-dvd-r-double-layer-white-inkjet-hub-printable-240623/index2.html, posts 66 and 82, as well as many other scans in that thread, for comparison of Pio vs Optiarc burns with these. The 7200 is a better choice with this particular disc . Burned many more w/ the 115D, and it never could compete with the AD-7200A on these Falcon DL’s.
Decent price on a black AD-7200A or AD-7201A from a place that isn’t likely to send you a 7220 instead of a 7200 as an “upgrade”(widespread selling scam, got burned by a few sellers pulling that stunt, be careful who you buy from.) http://www.provantage.com/sony-ad-7201a-ob~4SNYC9RR.htm
Just went to order some more Falcons, and it appears I missed my chance. Darn! Oh well, you snooze, you lose .
