i have a lite-on 411s with the latest firmware (FSOJ), and no matter what media i use and can't get accpetable burns. I'm trying to burn some dvd for some friends who mostly have older players, so the burns need to be very high quality. the only brand that i have been able to get good burns out of are some 2.4x Riteks dvd-rs. The movie i'm burning for them is very important so i need media that will last really long.
i got the maxell dvd-rs (taiyo yudens) from office depot and i figured that these would give the best burns since ty makes he best dvds ever. but hear are the results of the kprobe
the first dvd just flat out refused to burn in nero, but the second one did burn ok
as you can see its an ok burn, but i was expecting better since the ritek burns look like this:
i was going to burn another TY disk but i got a run of 7 un-burnable disk, 4 that nero wouldn't even try to burn 1 that would burn all the way through but wouldn't write the Lead out track, and 2 that said they we're full . of the ones that did burn the krope scans look even worse
after i saw that disc i figured that i would try kprobe 2 with the other disk and that looked like this:
so i've given up on TY disks.
now on to DVD+R, i found some cheap liquid video disks in town (Hey the TYs sucked i'd guess i'll go the other route:p)
but of course they didn't burn worth anything:
now i basic went shoping for any dvds i could find so i bought some imation dvd+rs (richol disks) also garbage:
and because at this time i've coaster'd around 12-20 disks i figured i'd get som dvd+rws and OMG they acally are worth a damn:
but i need dvd-rs
so yea, i did all the kprobes at 4x with the ecc set a 8 like the sticky said a i have found only one brand of disks that can be played back. So my question is is this normal?
i need the dvd ready for the 28th so i don't have time to rma my drive(or money to buy a new one), my last hope is some ritek G04 dvd-rs coming monday.
