This LiteOn is less then a week old.
I will try to have it replaced. The problem is they probably take it back test it and then return to me saying "Drive is working".
I am going to take graph printouts as proof. We will see.
Wchich LiteOn model is recognized as the best drive to use with Kprobe ???
Before you return the 811S, take your time and try some "testing"
i.) Put 811S on SM together with a DVD-ROM or CDRW drive.
ii.) Try some other (older) firmware. If you look around in Lite-On forum you will find FW and tools needed to revert.
iii.) Check your IDE-cable
iv.) Check your ASPI-layer and try to use other burning apps, like the bundled RecordNow DX (see my sign.)
Finally, KProbe is only a TOOL. DonÂ´t get blinded...Try your burned DVDÂ´s in your compu, standalone and/or PS2/xbox. Are they playing well, why complain.?
I almost always get better KProbe-results with cheapo (Made in Taiwan) RICOHJPNR01 than with Taijo Yuden.
Why? Honestly... I dont know... lol.
Edit: sure you can replace your 811. Go for an SOHW-812 (Sony-LiteOn)
