Alright...I need help.
I've got a Liteon LDW-851S with GS0H firmware installed in a P4 3.2 GHz with 2GB of RAM and Nero 184.108.40.206 on XP.
I bought 100 pack of Ritek G04 inkjet printable DVD-Rs (the legit good ones) and another 100 pack of Meritline 1x DVD-Rs.
I've burned through 60 of the G04s and 50 of the Meritlines on a Pioneer 104 and Sony 510 with zero errors or coasters. They discs all play 100% beautifully on all my DVD players (RCA, Onkyo, Panasonic, Xbox, and PS2.
The Liteon cannot burn these discs for crap. At 4x, the G04 fail verification almost every time. At 2x, the discs pass verification, but the video and audio break up during the last half of every movie. The Meritlines burn ok, but will occassionally hiccup (once or twice during every movie).
I'm lost. It's not the system (I can throw in my Pioneer and everything works great). The Liteon initially had GS08 firmware. It didn't work any better when I upgraded to GS0H.
What do I do? People post great success with the Liteon, but I'm extremely disappointed. Any ideas would be appreciated, especially since I'm 100% positive the media is good.
