I do not know much about my 222A, but it could be. When my previous NEC recorder went down, i had to find another IDE recorder fast, and there was not much choosing because this model was the only the tech shop had (all other were with SATA).
Now, I had burnt another disk with same contents in Linux, using K3B. Then I scanned with QpxTool, and the disk came out OK, with max 2 PIF and max 29 PIE.
So this narrows it down to either a software problem, or it was a media problem (which would be upsetting, because the MCC 004 is the only sort of DVDs I use for my collection ).
I will investigate this further, and will post updates here, but still - what is the best IDE scanner AND recorder that you know of?
If I have to buy another DVD recorder, the choice is now between LG and LiteON models. No Plextor, Pioneer or NEC, which, according to reviews I've found, have the best models.
