Lead Data 10x CDRW and 52327s



it will burn without any problem(12x, 10x, 8x, 4x), but can only be read back on 166s less than half of the time.

52327s can read it more successfully but with very inconsistant speed.

is it a drive problem or more likely media problem?


If a disc gives problems in more than one drive, I would guess it was the disc that has the problem…you could try it on another sytem/drive.


Smart-Burn shows:

    Drive Type = CD-RW    
     Disc Type = NORMAL CD-RW         
      Material = Phase Change
       Lead In = 97:26:51
      Lead Out = 79:59:74

Nominal Capacity = 702.83MB
Manufacturer Maybe = Lead Data Inc.
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 12X (Write)

anything abnormal?


Do a Kprobe scan and you will likely see lots of C2 errors. This is pretty crappy media.
