As I bought a lot of Mame Gold Prostudio CDRs, I would like to ask if anybody has tried the manual burning strategies (Varitec) to improve the burning results.
Used burners are Plextor Premium and Plextor 712.
The problem is, that Mame Gold is not in the list of recommended or compatible media, thus I think Plextor has to find the optimized strategy by OPC.
The results are not bad, but could be better:
Burning at 8x or 16x brings the following results:
8x: c1 = 2,0 (average) and about 20-24 (max) testing at 10-24x
16x: c1 = 2,3 and about 25-30 testing at 10-24x.
I have burnt some CDRs, the results are quite the same (average c1).
Has someone tried a Varitec strategy?
When burning Taiyo Yuden (Plextor) CDRs, the c1 average error is in most cases about 0,5 (burning at 8 oder 16x).
Remarks on Tayo Yuden CDRs: Nearly all my TY-CDRs which I burnt between 1999 und 2001 have still c1 (average) errors of 0,5-0,7 and c1 max < 20.
