LiteOn LTR52327S incompatible with Philips 48x?

Hi,

With my deceased Plextor 24/10/40 I never had any problems burning Philips 48x certified CD’s at 24x. Now I use a LiteOn LTR52327S which allows me to burn them at their certified speed of 48x, but with bad results (Nero cannot finish data verification because of read errors at the end):

Burning at 24x works much better (Nero data verification will finish without errors):

This is how the discs are recognised by SmartBurn 3:

Drive Type = CD-RW
Disc Type = CDR (A-)
Material = Phthalocyanine
Lead In = 97:15:17
Lead Out = 79:59:70
Nominal Capacity = 702.82MB (79m 59s 70f/LBA:359845)
Manufacturer Maybe = RiTEK
Smart-Burn Speed Limit = Wrt(52X),Rd(52X)

This happend on all discs. Are these Philips/RiTEK discs bad, or is my LiteOn drive not that well?

Can’t tell much without the scans to look at, but without testing your drive on a variety of media you can’t say if it’s a drive problem or not. The RiTEK discs are not known for high quality, RiTEK TG is much better. The last Phillips 48x that I bought were so bad that I’ve never bought any more, but they were CMC-made.

Edit: I did a cut/paste on your links and saw the scans. they are consistant with crappy media.

Most likely a media issue and not a drive issue.

But it’s hard to say without seeing scans from other top brands such as Taiyo Yuden.

There’s nothing wrong w my Riteks -
they just are of excellent quality, of which I’ve been telling here from time to time.

BoSkin: Nice scans! What was the rating of the discs, and at what speed did you burn them?

1-48x

Soft - Feurio! Mode - Best CLV ( using Yamaha’s Audio Master Quality Recording,
which makes longer and wider pits and lands and therefore the capacity of a 80’ disc is reduced to 68 minutes ).

Nice! They were sold under the “Ritek” brand name?

That’s funny. I have some discs left of an identical spindle and these indeed seem to perform very well. Really stupid, until recently I considered the Philips to be quality stuff for data backup and used the Platinum’s for audio discs. Should have done that the other way around I guess…
