I would have to say that you have a bad drive. I had quality problems with my first 20A1L but I RMAed it and have had good luck with the replacement.



Here are 4X scans for my previous two post.
These are pretty similar as far as PIE and PIF but much better for jitter.




Thanks for responding TooFastForYa,

This drive was manufactured in April 2007. How do i RMA it to Lite-On?

Thanks
NBK

I got my drive from NewEgg so I RMAed it though them. Not sure where you got your drive, but you may be able to RMA it though them. Just looked on liteon’s site and I didn’t see anything so if you have to go that route I would try catching them on their online support, or email them.

Hi

I bought my drive through Newegg on 17 May 2007. I will give them a call…

Thanks
NBK

I would try clearing out the learned media and see if that helps first.

Thanks for responding rolling56,

I already tried that before i burned.

NBK

Since you got it from NewEgg you can RMA it online. Just login and goto “My Account” then click the “Return Item (RMA)” link and go from there.

Thanks

I have already started the RMA process!

NBK

Looking forward to seeing some scans with your replacement.

Hi TooFastForYa,

My replacement should arrive on 13 August 2007. I plan to test it extensively!!!

NBK

Sounds good.

Hi

Should i start a new thread when i test the ‘new’ drive?

Thanks
NBK

Would be interested to see here how it goes.

Holy crap you guys are morons, no offense but seriously, you RMA a drive based of some scans of media burnt @ max speed??? Didn’t you think it could be the media or the extremely fast write speed? Try burning slower at any point or only 16x the whole way?

Sorry to be harsh but I hope they throw the drive back at you. This is a great example of taking scanning far too seriously. PIF clumps can be caused from dust, large rises in PIE can be poor media written @ high speed.

I think more testing should have been done before sending it back.
