Assuming this is a LiteOn, does this drive respond to the commands to enable HyperTuning & the like? I wonder if the drive could learn a strategy.

TTG02 was always the more questionable of the 8x TDK DVD-R. Quality always seemed inconsistent, which wasn’t helped by the quality CMC was said to be turning out (even though they managed their own 8x DVD-R fine, and produced MCC 02RG20 fine…). I wonder if there’s some fundamental difference between FTI’s production and the discs used to create the strategy (assuming a native strategy exists).

I also wonder why TDK (and FTI, now) didn’t just stick to TTH01.

I doubly wonder if there’s any physical difference between the TTH01 and TTG02 being produced by FTI.

Albert - The drive is based on a Mediatek MT1882N chipset, but does not respond to commands for SB, OHT, FHT, etc.

The FTI Century discs are platinum archival discs with an ultra hard coat. I’m not sure if that’s part of the problem for this drive.
