First of all I would like to thank you both for your time and suggestions
If I’ll find such a combination, I’ll never change fw, disks and burning speed!!!
[QUOTE=CDan;2214644]As a very general guideline, burners that don’t like TY will often work great on Ritek.[/QUOTE]
I can’t find Ritek where I buy CDRs. Only TY, Verbatim, TDK, Maxel, Imation, Intenso, Sony, Philips. From earlier buys I know TY, Verbs, TDK and Sony are no Ritek disks. Any suggestions?
I know… Thanks
[QUOTE=Ibex;2214745]Your Lite-On appears to be picky enough at reading CDs to produce useful scans. But trying to compare your scans with those that other people have posted is very difficult, there are so many variables. Later Lite-On CD writers were too good at reading bad discs and the scans often don’t show much difference between good and bad CDs. For example, scans from my SOHR-5239V often don’t show any significant difference between good discs and ones which my old laptop drive finds partly unreadable.
As [I]CDan [/I]has already suggested, experiment with different writing speeds and makes of disc to see if you can find a combination which your Samsung likes. [/quote]
So, you also suggest not to see reviews and scans from other people and trust my own ones performed with 52327S?
I still cannot figure out what this speed is for my case. I’ll try 48x, 40x and 32x till I figure out!
[QUOTE=Ibex;2214745]Alternatively you may prefer to invest in a better CD writer than your Samsung SH-S223. Here in the UK DVD writers are now about the same price as 2-3 50 disc CD-R spindles. The Optiarc AD-7200 series drives are good CD writers and work well with a wide range of different discs (but not the AD-7220 series which are completely different drives). Certain LG & Pioneer drives are also very good (but not all). My favorite CD writer was the Samsung 20x SH-S202/203 series, now sadly discontinued but they can still be found on sale here. Unlike the 22x SH-S222/223 models which replaced them they were superb CD writers.[/QUOTE]
You’re not wrong at this. But if I know me well, I would say that even if I buy the BEST CD recorder, I’ll still experiment with Samsung till I find something that works good. It’s not really a matter of money cost, rather than mentality
Thanks again, I appreciate all your help!!
