Isn't Taiyo Yuden supposed to be ok?

I have always used Verbatim or Memorex on my liteon ldw411. Of course the manufacturer ID varies on these and they are just ok media at best. I spent the extra $ and bought some Fuji made in Japan Taiyo Yuden due to the praise I hear for that manufacturer. I have now burned 2 DVD+Rs and with both of them my Kprobe scans suck. The PI values are very high from the very beginning. I have used some very cheap media and never gotten values this bad. Am I doing something wrong?

I am sorry, I posted this in the wrong forum, and there doesn’t seem to be an “edit” option for me to delete it.

actually it is the drive not the discs is my guess. ty and some other 8x medias do not scan well in the 411: example
