Pinto, How are your results with other -r media? Is it only g04 that produce great results? Do you use FS0F for dvd-r writing?
Out of my more then 100 burned DVDs, ~80 are on DVD-R media.
I have tested PRINCO 1-4X, 4X and BulkPaq orange 4X (on fw FS02 & FS0F & FS0H), Memorex 4X (on FS0F & FS0H) with good succes. Burned this media @2X, 2,4X and sometimes @4X with high PI/POs (max >800/180).
NO skipping movies on my Pioneer 106, standalones and PS2.
Datadisks also have high PIPOs and a lot of read errors, but DVD/DVDRW drives can read them without problems...
Read about RiTEK here on forum and finaly found cheap RitekG 04 (TraxData). Been burning almost 40 of these @2,4 and 4X (on FS0F), with no technical coaster sofar.
[Tryed this media on fw FS0H & FS0J with mixed results. Movies sometimes skipping and it gives me rather high PI/POs (> 160/30)]
Recently I tested some RiTEK +Rs (silver frosted top), with fw FS0J + bitsetting tool. Scans show same levels as G 04 (PI/PO max 40/8).
But my drive dont like fw FS0J for some reason. Noisy and some "grinding" noise at start-up and in the begining of burn/scan...
With fw FS0F they burn and play like charm.!
