This is my second lite-on drive that I'm having problems with although I doubt it's the drive this time.
If I burn past 78:00 on my 80 minute ProDiscs at 24x I get a number of damaged sectors at the end of the disc.
If I do it at 40X I get unreadable sectors at the end,like the last 2-5%. This is weird because I used to burn ProDisc media at 40X without a problem.
I've burned the same images on Fuji (Taiyo Yuden) Media with no errors on the discs at all. I do have the latest firmware the F version.
Would it be safe to say that somehow ProDisc has a bad batch of discs which have problems at the end? This is really upsetting because they are known to be higher quality and in the past they have been great for me. I guess the fact that Taiyo Yuden media works fine with the same image and the same speed means this is not a hardware problem and must be the ProDisc discs?
Also will 1-2% of damaged sectors have an impact on the disc's long-term readability and the ability for non-computer optical devices to read them (eg. PS2)?
Any input would be appreciated.
