Well, i got my 812s about 4 months ago, and the first media i got for it was Yi Jhan, well needless to say thats really bad media, and after burning them they would never read again, i had 100% failure rate. Now after that i picked up some RITEKG04’s which i have yet to burn one successfully without errors on the disk, Nero Verify never passes, and the Kprobe results are really poor.
Now after that i tried one disk from a kid on my floor, it was GSC002 media, and well Kprobe never even finished, and was around 60,000 read errors when i finally stopped it.
After that i went and bought some PRODISCF01 media which i burned, and this is my result. Nero verify failed but it seems alot better than the RITEKG04’s, im not sure why nero verify failed because KProbe says 0 read errors.
Now granted those arent great results either, and i burned that @ 4x not 8x like the disks say they can go to, actually everything ive burned has been @ 4x or 2x and none have helped.
Do i have a bad drive? Should I RMA my drive because it seems like i cant ever get a good burn no matter what media i am using.
