Apart from the E22 errors, an excellent result (disc defect or writer? - more testing required). BLER average is significantly better than other drives have managed so far with this pack of discs (1.0-1.3).

Another very good result with lower than expected BLER. About 40 discs from this pack have been used and the BLER average has consistently been about 2.2-2.5.

That’s what I assumed, it was probably just being fussy/cautious.

It’s the only BD-R disc I’ve tried so far in this drive, but it writes Verbatim & CMC BD-RE very nicely at 2x.

Another disc from this pack was written on my Sony BWU-500S and looked a lot better. But a sample size of 2 isn’t enough to conclude that one writer is better than the other. :iagree:

Written at 4x.

It paused at about 4GB, which probably explains the spike on the scan.

Same pack of discs as post #2 above.

I’m now convinced it is an issue with Nero 8.

My BDR-S06XLB did exactly the same thing with another BD-R, and with these CMC BA5 it only offers 1x speed. With Ashampoo Burning Studio it offered the full range of speeds and successfully completed a disc at 4x.

The disc above was written by the BDR-TD03 with CDBurnerXP in 32 minutes, which seems correct for 4x CAV.

This BDR-TD03 continues to impress me with its writing quality on all types of disc. On these CMC BA5 it has been consistently better than others (although the sample size is still very small). Here is another disc from this pack written with the BDR-S06XLB.
