Never mind...figured it out...
This drive is one of the WORSE POS I have ever used. The burn quality is very sub par with Mitsubishi Chemical discs. Verbatim DVE-R got a 0 quality scan burning at 16X. Currently trying Verbatim 16X DVD+R, but at this rate things don't look good with firmware 8L0C. Scanning BD-R/s burned with my Pioneer also look like junk (one disc...granted...Ritek) scored a 50
Ouch. Perhaps I will just return this dog and call it a day
