I just recieved my 3540A from newegg and it looks like it might not be that hot.
That or the media I have isn’t that good.
The last 4 digits of the serial are S112 and it was made in July 2005 if that is of any value.
P4 1.7, 256mb ram, 20gb hdd.
When I did the burn with Nero Express (v184.108.40.206) it only gave me 16x as the lowest choice.
However it burned at around 3.7X which shouldn’t be bad since the media was only 4X.
The write speeds on Nero say it’s good to 8X.
The burn was done from data on a mapped drive. the ethernets cards are 100mbps.
The media I am using is FujiFilm DVD+R 4X
I don’t think this is the “Made in Japan” media. Where would I see that?

Disk Quality at 8X:
Shouldn’t there be jitter info?
The PI Errors & PI Failures numbers are lower on the 16x below.
Disk Quality at 16X:
Are the PI Errors & PI Failures high?
what is a good quality score?<p>
Scandisk C1/C2 P1/P0 Test:
This looks like almost half the burn is bad.

is half the data bad on this?<p>

The only other media I have is 2 MCC 003 8X.
I didn’t want to to buy much media until I verifyed the drive
and know which is best to use on this.
How much of a difference would a firmware update make on the tests performed?
