or else my 1640 suddenly likes CMC media better. The following scans are scans of the same ISO image, burned at 8x (my usual burn speed for backups). The first scan is the better of 2 burns with Verbatim MCC004 (can’t remember if this was a Newegg or a Best Buy batch). The second is with some Teon branded CMC media that I picked up before Christmas last year from Staples. I’m tempted to enable solid burn for known media, but I don’t want to risk messing up the CMC burn strategy, especially since I have about 200 CMC on the shelf. I never get PIF spikes over 8, let alone several in double digits.
Has anyone else been having problems with Verbatim media recently?
