I have had this drive since Christmas and it has done very well in most types of media i have burned. I have just recently started to burn +DL discs on it maybe about 2 months ago.
I brought some AOne media which had the RicohD01 media code. I was able to burn them well and they would read, however they did have high PIE (mostly 2nd layer) But this isn’t my problem.
I just brought 100 AOne +DL discs last week and i can’t burn them anymore. 50% of the time i get an error at the very start 30% of the time i get an error somewhere in the burn and the 20% chance it will actually burn but it doesnt read after that anyway. And when it actully gets to the end of the burn it errors out on finalizing disc with imgburn!
I have the latest 1.M1 firmware. (I have tried others 1.02, 1.03 but its the same issue)
I thought it must be the discs, so i RMA them for some PiData which have a RitckS04 dye. I get the same problem again. Its getting costly now and i am starting to actually think my drive is gone. It can still burn DVD-R fine so what the hell is going on!
