Recently i bought a Lite-On SOHR 5238S (firmware 4S06) and on the whole it functions well though i’m not that satisfied yet with its CD-RW performance. Esp. with Mt. Rainier formatted and certified media its write speed can drop to a stunning 250-300kb/sec whereas the OPC information gives me about 1750 kb/sec :a
The media i used is Lead-Data (650Mb, speed unknown, CD-RW). The OPC data would suggest at least about say 10 speed would be possible but why the 2x-4x? could be that i selected CLV and left the read and write speed to the drive?
I also tried Memorex 8x-12x, 700Mb CD-RW but was having big troubles at the end of the disc…
Any help or URL’s to test data would be great. I couldn’t find it yet on the forum
Thanks in advance,
