Ok i have no idea why but this past week i have gotten bad burns from what i used to normally get. could someone please tell me why?
Here is my setup by the way. I have a tsstcorp cd/dvdw ts-h552b GA4. I use clonedvd2 to burn at a speed of 8x on verbatim 16x dvd-r's.
I also have a JVC standalone dvd recorder that i use with verbatim 16x dvd-rs also.
I have used this setup for about 2 months now and in that two months, my avergae pi failures for the tsstcorp burner would be around 900 at a max of 1 with a couple spikes at 2 / my average pi failures for the standalone would be about 2000 pi failures with a max of 3 and spikes at 3.
Now all of a sudden this past week i have been getting about 2000 pi failures on average with a max of 3 for the tsstcorp / and i am sometimes getting about 10,000 pi failures with a max of 5 for the standalone.
Now i dont think its just a coincidence that both of these burners have gone bad in the past week at the same time. Could it be that something is wrong with my cd/dvdspeed program, could something have happened to it in the past week that made it give these results? or could both burners have gone bad?? is it possible that after about 2 months of burning and using a dvd drive, that it goes bad?
