Great forum!

After reading for some time on the problems with the GSA-4120B focus on tracking error and trying to resolve the same problem with my drive, trying everything under the sun but to no resolve!
My one question? i have yet to see any mention of Focus On Tracking Error with MEMOREX 8X dvd+R. Has anyone had any problems with this media.

Memorex sources their media from many companies, like CMC etc. So, one batch of this
DVD+R 8X might be identified CMC, while another might be of Prodisc in origin for example.
Not an entirely reliable media in my opinion. Some folks may have no problem while some
have learned a lesson.

What is the media id code of the Memorex that is causing you focus/tracking problem?

I use only Ricoh, MCC, and TY, and have yet to encounter the dreaded focus/tracking
error. I am on firmware A111.
