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.
