I bought it one week ago and burned the accompanying Liteon DVD8x -R(CMC), but the result is so bad. I did update the Firmware before burning. The software I used is the Latest Nero Express 6 which came with the drive.
The Liteon (CMC) 8x-R, it is nearly unreadable (Fig 1)
Then I bought some 4xDVD+R Disc for testing
I found that my 1213s can read the DVD+R disc back smoothly only for the beginning 4GB, then the drive keeps spinning up/down when reading the remaining 0.39GB. I tried several discs already. (Fig 2)
Can anyone give me some comments? Should I return the drive?
