been biten by the burning bug but have a lot of problems burning media with my new freecom dvd 8x +/- RW8J1 burner.
i have tried packard bell media and that is a problem on burning
i have tried infiniti media sony dye and the fails to burn 4 out of five
i now have datawrite yellow v2 ritek G04 and that is better but not perfect by any means and in 10 burns will be a PROB ON MAYBE 4/5!
the drive burn light comes on and the sequence of the burn completes ok but when the disc is removed it contains no data and is untouched ? this happens on all 3 types of media ? but it will burn any kind of cd-r 100% all day long?
the media will contain no data and will be reconised by reinserting back in the drive as a new disc and will sometimes burn on the 2nd try some will some wont. is this a media prob or are freecom burners poor ?
my college has a nec 2500 burner and we can burn the same media ok 9/10 in tests ? this is driving me mad as i some times have to have 3/4 goes at burning a movie only to find at the end of 15mins burning the disc is clean.
i have searched various forums and i thought ritec G04 discs may solve the prob ! it has to some extent but not to a acceptable standard. there doesnt seem to be much info on the freecom RW8J1 and some where it said they were in fact liteon burners ? freecom site has no info on firmware upgrade and a search on google turn up nothing
i have tried the drive in another pc with completly different spec and it produced the same results on burning as above
any ideas besides getting a nec 2500
