I’m trying to figure out if my burner is defective. My Optorite fried itself again and although the manufacturer has replaced it, I would like to ebay it and get something more reliable. So I went out and got a Pacific Digital rebadged Liteon 811S. I flashed my firmware to HS0Q and burned a couple DVD-R. Using KProbe, I found that both had PI Max of over 500. I tested an older DVD-R burned with my old Optorite and it had PI Max of 60. Same media (Ritek G03).
So I’m wondering, should I stick with Optorite, or is there something I can do to get this Liteon to burn better? I just flashed to HS0R but would rather not make another coaster.
