My (OEM may 2003) LiteOn 52327S (upgraded to official firmware QS09) seems to be incompatible with Memorex (16x-)24x UltraSpeed CDRW's...
Everytime I burn data on them with Nero 126.96.36.199 (demo) one of the following three options will happen at data verification:
1) the drive cannot even mount the disc once the tray closes
2) the drive mounts the disc, starts reading and Nero hangs at some point
3) the drive mounts the disc, finishes reading but at a very low speed (verification takes [far more] longer than burning the disc)
I inspected the discs with KProbe and am not very happy with the results:
One Memorex disc with
3119/3226768/792.428 C2 errors (max/total/average)
and one with
The Verbatim UltraSpeed 24x delivered with the drive performs much better:
My old HighSpeed discs also perform better:
Now, I wonder: are the media crapp? Or is my drive bad?
If it's the media, which others should I try?
Thank you for your time,
