I own for about 4 years now a LiteOn 812s burner which I flashed to 832s CG5G.
Until now I constantly used Fuji 8x DVD+R - media code YUDEN000T02 (Yaiyo Yuden) and me burn results were quite good.
Recently, the Fuji media is no longer available, so I searched for other higher quality media and I tested two
(I could only find 16x media which seemed decent) :
- Verbatim 16X DVD-R media code TYG03
- TDK 16X DVD+R media code TDK003
I noticed that the burn results (in kprobe) were significantly worse.
I flashed the drive with firmware CG5M, but still got the same bad results.
I attached kprobe results from the earlier 8X Fuji (YUDEN000T02) and from the newer 16X TDK and Verbatim medias.
Does the decrease in burn quality is because of the different, newer 16X media ?
Is it time to move on to a newer dvd burner
(if so could you please recommend the latest LiteOn which is recommended),
or is there any other reasons you could think of , that cause this decrease
Thank you and have a nice day
