I've had an NEC 1300 4x DVD Writer for a while and with one of Herries ( ) wonder firmware hacks it burned any piece of junk I threw at it. I mostly used BulkPaq which I know are rubbish but the NEC didn't mind
I've just moved to the LiteOn SOHW-1653S for faster burns and DL and have had more coasters from my Bulkpaq rubbish media than I've had hot dinners.
I know you are all going to tell me to buy new media but I did a bulk buy a while ago and have around 100 of the Bulkpaq White 4x Generation 4 +R discs and around another 50 of the Bulkpaq Orange 4x Generation 4 -R discs.
I'm happy to lose the -R discs as I know the 1653 prefers +R but I would like to use at least some of the Bulkpaq +R discs. I can get the +R discs to work but the smartburn buffer goes like crazy from 100% down to 2% and then back up, and it takes over 25mins to burn a disc !! Even then around 1 in 4 is a coaster.
I've looked at Omnipatcher but I'm not sure I understand it yet. My problem is the type of disc these Bulkpaq White +R are supposed to be. They report an ISO001 001 type??? Anybody know what this is, and whether it has a setting in omnipatcher?
Or is my liteon never going to burn these discs properly?
