A further reply (from reading over some of your other posts):
If you are trying to use Kodak-branded media: Kodak is no longer known for choosing the highest quality media. You could have B-grade/C-grade/F-grade media on your hands that deserves to be replaced. You may have to replace it with Verbatim-branded media, which usually helps avoid any problems whatsoever.
Since you have seen RICOHJPN D01 and had it function fine, you might be thinking that strategy swapping would help. Well, Ricoh D01 has suffered from many of the same issues you’re having. It’s kind of the luck of the draw on whether the quality is good or bad under some of these brands. That’s why I think swapping strategies will not work as well as hoped.
I also notice that you have tried a few of the same drive (which you pointed out above). Maybe try a different model of drive, if possible. Though the LiteOn should perform fairly well (heck, it wrote to the Ricoh!), it could be that you would have better luck with an Optiarc.
You’ll notice others have issues with MBI’s DL media, too:
And more recently, member jadburner had a batch that had a characteristic spike of errors at the same spot across a number of discs in a number of drives:
This, again, isn’t to say that MBI’s media is crud, but it is easy to get bad discs under good brand names.
And other good manufacturers, like FTI, can be affected with their own media:
…Just pointing out the wide range of issues that could possibly plague you, that are more related to media than to the drive writing them not being equipped to write them. It may be more prudent to wait until you can try new hardware and new media so you don’t waste time trying to tweak the software end of things.
