After Tinkering around with firmware updates, trying older versions to newer version, also installing the drive into different configurations (slave, master, IDE primary, secondary ) and only coming out with the same results (FOCUS ON TRACKING ERROR) All with Memorex DVD+R 8X media manufactured by CMC magnetics I've now switched media to Maxell DVD+R 8x and have burned several discs with complete success! Also noting with these 8x discs Iâ€™m able to burn in 12X speed, Bonus on that part
Problem solved for me
... Q: my Maxell 8x DVD+R has a code and id MAXELL 002 are they manufacturing the disc themselves or is this some other company ID?
Also some of my other Maxell 4X are manufactured by RICOHJPN R01
