i have a lite-on 812s that i purchased back when it first came out and i’ve
started having problems with burning recently.
i’ve almost only used ritekg05’s as my media as i’ve never had any problems
with them (hundreds of discs burned, maybe 1 or 2 coasters not attributed
to the disc itself) until recently.
i haven’t burned anything for a while - maybe a couple of months, but have
used it to read. it’s in an enclosure for usb 2.0 so that i can move it around,
i have 5 computers and it’s just easier for me.
just this past week, i purchased another 50pk of ritek and out of… maybe
5 dvds used… 5 were bad, so i stopped there. I never updated the firmware
on it as i’ve never needed to (never had problems, so) so i burned another
dvd - which turned out bad - then updated to the latest US0S and burned
another dvd - which also turned out bad.
I’ve never used kprobe before, but i downloaded and installed it and did a
test on the US0S burn of the dvd, which is attached to this post (hopefully).
could anyone tell me what the read-out means? i’m currently scanning the
same data burned dvd on the US01 firmware, but i’m getting a large amount
of “Errors” and “Servo Error” so i can only think that maybe my burner is
thanks for any help.
the scan on the us01 burn finished.
