I have kprobe 2.4.3 and I don't seem to have the option in software to set it to 4x so I was using nero drivespeed to set read speed to 4x. Does that display as max since the speed is set outside of kprobe?
Anyway to change things up a little. I installed pfs3 and did another burn at 4x. Still doesn't play in the toshiba or read in my desktop. The stand alone player should play the +r's ok. It played all the old +r discs I threw at it out of the old burner, but none from this one, even media off the same spindle that worked with the old drive.
I just did the learned media reset so testing will continue. I don't think it was defective, I bought it from a guy who were selling a ton of new packaged dell parts, although it could certainly be a lemon.
The first attachment is TY media burned with the old FW. The second is with the new FW. Perhaps the problem isn't error rate afterall.
