im redoing test erase the +RW then burn about 1:32 of video to it see what I get.

No problems with Ricoh R01.

Sony media, 4x burn:



#12

I just realized that that disc that I was using for reference was the first DVD I burnt when I got this drive back in March 04. With the fw that was original on the drive. LOL what a dup. I got to get a current burn and then do some testing. Ima monkey. Told ya I was new to the program.

nero 6.3.1.17 4388mb data

burn time 9:22

@KenW
Have you tried “force-fallback” on that MCC003 media? Looks like a good candidate to me…


#15

@Guns4Hire
Sinse you got us VS08, your forgiven… :stuck_out_tongue:

I would really not like to hack fw , i dont really believe in it, if force-fallback could be done in nero i would try it. but if it needs to hack fw I dont want to.


#17

I’m not twisting your arm. If you can live with it stock, that’s fine by me… :slight_smile:


#18

no i will just burn the media at 6x , see the problem is that mcc003 singpore burns like you see, but mcc003 taiwan burns with high 6x level but 4x 8x level under 15 pi
so if i messed with fw for one the other would still not work well


#19

Okay, finally got around to flashing the darn thing. :wink: Instant bitsetting works… Now doing a +R burn…


#20

Yes, we have the same dilemma with R01@R02 strategy switching. Some media loves it and others hate it. There’s no way to know which to use at burn time.

I am however working on an auto fallback, which may solve the issue that your having with the two types of MCC003 media…
