This is my first post here , I’ve been looking for a forum like this great one to post my problem.
First I had an Asus 1608P drive which is a Pioneer 109 OEM , It served me very well for 6 months , then suddenly it started to screw up with CDs , I didn’t try DVDs coz they are expensive here in Egypt (Yep I am Egyptian).
When I burn CDs on my home PC after reaching 100% it gives me “Could not perform Fixation” and the CD is unusable , in my work PC it burns successfully but CD shows as blank and it becomes unusable too .
I sent it back and got my self a new shiny Asus 1608P2 Black drive which is Pioneer 110D OEM drive.
Here is my problem :
Here in Egypt we have only 3 brands of media DVD+R , Benq 8X “Daxon AZ2” , LG 8X “INFODISCR20” and Samsung 8X “OPTODISC” , prices here are insane the disc costs 1 U$ in Egyptian pounds , and there are no high quality Media like TY , also there was another LG 8X “CMC MAG E01” that is no longer available
Here is how my old 109 handled them :
DAXON AZ2 8X@8X Quality : Very Good
INFODISCR20 8X@8X Quality :Very Good
OPTODISC 8X@8X Quality : Medium
CMC MAG E01 8X@12X Quality : Good
CMC MAG E01 8X@8X Quality : Very Good
Now the new 110 “with original 1.17 , newer 1.37 , Pioneer 110"not D” or Buffalo 8.37" :
DAXON AZ2 8X@6X!! Quality : Very Good
INFODISCR20 8X@4X!!! Didn’t bother writing at this horrible speed
OPTODISC : Don’t have them anymore
CMC MAG E01 8X@6X!! Quality : Very Good
What is wrong with 110 ?
Does it only support good speeds on 2 or 3 media types ?
As you can see my old 109 wrote CMC 8X @12X while the new 110 only wrothe them @6X speed
What am I supposed to do ?
Thank you very much in advance
