Hey Everyone -
I just received my brand new Liteon 20A1P drive yesterday and for the most part, its incredible! Overall its burning better than my NEC 3520 and its scanning capabilities are amazing.
I have noticed a problem though, my drive hates Verbatim DVD+R (MCC004) media. In looking at other peoples scans, this media tends to burn very well however I’ve tried 3 discs now and the PIE/PIF results are all high…
There are pictures below, but heres a quick summary
MCC004 DVD+R Media Results: (Looks bad to me)
PIE Total: 205,903
PIE Max: 57
—PIF Total: 3546
—PIF Max: 8
MCC003 DVD-R Media Results: (looks great to me!)
PIE Total: 15,836
PIE Max: 11
—PIF Total: 310
—PIF Max: 3
TYG02 DVD-R Media Results: (looks pretty good to me)
PIE Total: 11,905
PIE Max: 11
—PIF Total: 2314
—PIF Max: 4
RICOHJPN R03 DVD+R Media Results: (looks good for cheap media to me)
PIE Total: 63,606
PIE Max: 40
—PIF Total: 1319
—PIF Max: 2
All of the burns were done at Max Speed, and I’d like to reiterate that I’ve done 3 MCC004 DVD+R discs, all with similar results. For the last scan (the one posted below) I turned off SmartBURN (at least I think I did) and the results got a little better than past scans, but still not “good”
So my questions for the forum are:
- Does the Liteon 20A1P drive hate Verbatim DVD+R Media?
- Is the MCC004 scan as bad as I think it is?
- What could I be doing wrong that would cause this top notch media (that burned very well in old NEC 3520) to not burn well on my new LiteOn Drive?
- Has anyone else noticed this problem
