Is this a good DVD+R media?

hey people,

sorry i new to kprobe and i was wondering if this is a good burn. also did i use the right settings??

comparing this to some other results, this appears to be good

media: Ritek DVD+R
burner: ldw451s@851
Datatype: DVD movie

cheers stephen

the burn looks ok. If i remeber correctly pi under 200 and po under 4 is a good burn. But i think if it works well in your player (eg. no freezing or skipping), then its fine They have a new firmware out that does pretty well on writing media. Go check out the liteon forum.
Can you post the media code on here?
Also when using k probe scan at 4x, don’t ask me why, everyone just does that.

Few questions

Because i burnt this dvd at 2.4x, should i still scan at 4x ???

I thought i had the latest firmware that i customised for the ldw851s (used that awsome tool omnipatcher, thanks for that) Do you know what firmware it was??

Anyway as for the media, i brought some ritek 25 DVD+R ($39 AU) from, and was shocked when i did the media test, this is what i got straight from dvdinfo

these are great media for liteon. i have the same drive and here was my last scan and others. as well as the link to the new firmware.

you scould burn the media at 8x actually. use the omnipatcher to add the speed.

Dammmmmm, could some one please explain;

ok i gave a the new firmware a go, WHAT THE??? as you can see i adjusted the scale to the recommended PO/PI, and scaned at 4x, on a Ritek (RICOHJPNR01) , of this disc, i burnt a ISO movie that was full size with NERO.

djd1- what type of burner do you have? What software do you use?

everyone else is getting awsome results, some ideas would be great?


ps- i reckon its got something to do with the fact that i only have a 451s

i have a true 851s and i use nero 6 to burn my discs. I’m using the same firmware as you. You should post this in the liteon forum and attach a link to this post on there so you don’t double post and more people can help you. Or get a mod to move this to that forum.

what do you mean you adjusted the scale? try using k probe 2 its in the media forum
