I have a problem recording TY T03 media on the LH20A1S. It’s identified by the DVDIdentifier as follows:
Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+R:YUDEN000-T03-000]
Disc & Book Type : [DVD+R] - [Not Available]
Manufacturer Name : [Taiyo Yuden Co. Ltd.]
Manufacturer ID : [YUDEN000]
Media Type ID : [T03]
Product Revision : [Not Specified]
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,295,104 Sectors = 4.70 GB (4.38 GiB)]
Recording Speeds : [1x-2.4x , 4x , 6x-8x , 6x-16x]
The maximum speed the drive records the discs is x8. I thought at the beginning that maybe the burns were slow due to some drive’s learning system - I didn’t use SmartBurn though. But after a few times it’s still the same. Using alcohol and selecting manually x16 speed (the x18 and x20 are also available) I got the message:
“Illegal speed 16.0x for this medium, running on 8.0x”
I tried the drive on my Intel945G platform and also as the external drive using PCIExpress - SATA card on my laptop. The same problem both times. I am running 9L05 firmware downloaded from LiteOn wep page.
I am not sure now if this the drive or if there’s something wrong with the media. And just to mention something I already put in a different thread - the drive also doesn’t recognize DL media (RICOHJPN D01 rev.002).
Any ideas? Thank’s a lot for your help!
