I think I can confirm that LL07 fixed my problems with the drive.
Immediately after updating the firmware, I:
- Ran a burn
- Burned a small LS text
- Burned again right away.
The burn after LS was consistent with the burn before LS.
I think the LS issue was what was happening before too, when I posted earlier about problems with this drive. I think it can be attributed to LL06 problems. I haven't had a bad burn since updating.
I also think (but I'm no expert) that the drive had READING issues, as opposed to writing issues, as the same "bad" disk seemed to read normally in my other drive.
I never would have figured any of this out without this forum! It's a great resource
