First of, I like my liteon 411s (currently modded to a 811s). It writes dvd+r discs nicely and with the bitsetting tool it plays on most dvd players. I choose high quality +r media and have no problems.
But the 411s is also a “minus” dvd writer. DVD-r are much cheaper than dvd+r so I have bought samples of all the dvd-r discs I could get my hands on. I think I’ve bought more than 15 different brands of minus discs and so far only 1 (yes, ONE) has worked! All other discs has unreadable parts (Nero will report an error during verify).
Most of the discs where written using the FS0F firmware and a few of them using HS0P (after Zebra v4 modding)
The only -r disc that worked was a Taiyo Yuden disc. But even this has dissapointing Kprobe PI’s (max 827, avg 325)
I have still not tried the Ritek G03 or G04 because I can only buy these in 25 pcs tubs and I don’t want to waste even more money on media if these don’t work either.
Does anyone else have this problem?
Does anyone have success with Ritek’s even though all or most other -r media did’nt work?
