BTW what’s the best 8x media in the UK available that burns well at 12x for under £25 for 100? :wink:


#182

Burned same media (yuden000 t02) on the 3520 with same results :confused:


#183

Looks like your batch is not the greatest. Only way to be certain is try on another PC.

You are not alone
YUDEN000 TG02 TG001125



#185

Well it is 8x media after all. I think you just have to be lucky to get some from a good stamper batch that burns at 16x


#186

Thanks for testing. Now I know for sure it’s the YUDEN batch :sad:
Maybe Dee can do something with the write strategy…


#187

Same batch and ND-3500 stands on ITE 8212F integrated controller on ASUS P4GD1



#188

Hmm. Looks like a write strat issue then after all?


#189

Dee told everyone to use the Windows drivers for IDE!
Yesterday I gave her my word and uninstalled the Intel INF. and went back to Microsoft drivers and wat happens, there comes an unexpected ERROR, something about CRC and UDMA buffer or DMA… :confused: I made the scan over again and then sooner this report came, so I installed the Intel INF. again and runs good ever since!
Sorry DEE I wanted to work that!

FUJIFILM8X YUDEN000 T02 Burned@8x



#191

Yes looks like they burn very nice at their ‘rated’ speed.


#192

Did you check that the MS drivers were actually working correctly and were the right ones? There are a couple of MS drivers and one is the correct one and the other is not. I am assuming you are using XP SP2.

I am using the accellerated VIA drivers right now.

cmc 16x dvd+R (printable) at 12x max


#194

One disc scanned with BenQ and NEC




#195

thats 16x dvd-r white printable at 16x (TYG03)

i would say the burn is fast and great :iagree:


#196

40pin or 80pin wont make a difference afterall.
it is up to you to choose which kind.


#197

But you scanned 8x on the Benq and 5x at the NEC. So the test is not the same…


#198

Do you think the result are comparable?


#199

@Seti:
To get a more accurate comparison, scan at 4x on the Benq.
