I have had my LiteOn 451s writer for ages now, & I have been going through my DVD collection converting all the stuff I have on crappy “Princo” dyes to the new “Ridisc Ritek Extreme 4X G05” DVD-R’s.
I have tried other dyes in the past, like “CMC MAG AE1” & a Taiyo Yuden that I had from a sample pack, however I get pretty much the same results using any type of dye.
My kprobe results seem to be around (PI) 100-200 & (PIF) 3-4.
I found a dramatic improvement in my results by changing the write strategy of “Ritek G05” to the G06 setting, this is what is giving me the results above, before doing this I was having (PI) of around 400-500.
However I cant help thinking that while im not getting too many problems, I would like to know how I can improve these results a little more.
A (PI) of around 20 would be nice
I was wondering if the LiteOn 451s that im using is a good drive or not? I havent had any other drives to compare against.
I have searched a little on the net for some KProbe results of the “Ritek Extreme G05” disks that im using, to see if I can see what results can be achieved using other writers, but I cant seem to find any, anyone know of any links?
Thanks in advance for any advice,
