So a while back I had a old 4x single layer in my laptop and wound up replacing it with a Sony DW-R56A off ebay. I thought I’d try to get some fresh firmware with more media codes on it so I flashed it with LITE-ON SOSW-852S version PST3.
Now the only issue is my old burner I used to use ritek media and it would play in an older standalone toshiba dvd player. I get a disc error with anything off the new one. The dvd rom in my desktop won’t read them either. Kprobe tests of the ritek looked awful so I tried some maxell and it looked better, but not readable in everything. First up is the kprobe result of 8x maxell media burned at 4x. I figured maybe the media just didn’t mesh as well with the new burner. Here’s the kprobe of it http://club.cdfreaks.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=36051&stc=1
I ordered a 100 pack of taiyo yuden 8x +r thinking that would help test that idea out. So I burned another dvd at 4x only to get the same non-usable results on the player and my dvdrom. Kprobe of that attached. Any ideas on how I can improve the compatibility of the discs this burner is making? The old one was slow, but more functional in this sense. Just from looking at the blank media test forum it looks like I’m getting way way more errors than I should on this media. Both kprobe results had the nero speed app open with read speed set to 4x too.
