Finally got some Taiyo Yuden’s today and tested them out. So far these are better than my Memorex(cmc xxx) and Maxell (ritek g0x) but that’s not saying much. I seem to be also getting different results with successive scans. Initially it was (83, 77) and second scan resulted in (77, 70). Although the first burn was at 8x, the drive switched to slower 6x burning even with 8x selected on the second burn.
Drive: LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1693S
Disc: DVD+R (YUDEN000 T02)
Selected speed: 8 X
Program: Dvd Decrypter 3.5.0
I’m thinking of switching to KS0A firmware, since I’ve seen some good results on the forum with that. I’ve only burnt 2 dvd’s so far, should I go for 5+ burns until the drive/firmware get used to the media?
