After trying all default firmwares for NEC and Herries work on 1.07 BETA 5 (current)
I cannot get to write correclty the Ritek G03 disks, and i am becaming desperate…
All DVD+R works perfect, CD and CD-RW also, but the only DVD-R that i can get here in my provider is the Ritek G03 (purple die).
This DVD although it can burn even at 4x speed with herrie, the NEC 2500A itself will not read it, pass the 15% of the disks… also, my DVD READER (5800A NEC) being NEC also has problems.
My other DVD READER the wonderful Pioneer 106 reads the CD perfectly with 0 problems altough minor slowdowns at the end.
Is there any solution to this? or i will just have to buy DVD+R and forget ritek g03 completly? because, here… the difference between G03 (4.5 pesos, i live in argentina) and DVD+R unbranded (7.5) is way to high to forget.
PD: I read all the rpc1.org forums and herrie work for an answer, but, so far, besides knowing that G03 have problems, noone mentioned a solution.
Also, i am finishing a review of this drive (a simple review) because here in maximopc are a general hardware page oriented to video and cpu reviews and this problem is killing me, i cannot find another dvd-r to test.
