I ordered these Samsung DVD +R media from Newegg 50 of them for about $38 dollars US. I got it from here if anyone is interested:

I am using Codeguys GSC2 firmaware on a 851S. Uing DVD Indentifier i get this info:

I was wondering if this is decent media and what if any OP strategies I should use with this. I’m willing to try them but I want as few coasters as possible.

Thanks in advance for any responses! :slight_smile:

This is Taiyo Yuden media. There’s nothing in the world that’s better!

The default tweaks in OP-1.3.3 will bump the writing speed of this media (T01/00) up to 8x using the T01/01 strat. Use that. I personally had good results doing that with Samsung TY media from Newegg using GSC2.
