I have a plexator 716-uf tla#0203, I'm wondering if anyone can help me on why I get such crappy burns with TY DVD+R discs. I have a case of Sony DVD+R, which are Yuden000, T02, TG001162 and a case of FujiFilm DVD+R, which are Yuden000, T02, TG001158. On both disc I normally try to burn at 12x, with a change book type and after I run tests TA gives me good to bad discs on all three rings, PI/PO test start out really good then in the middle and end get a big jump, PIE avg. is 17.05 with a 806 max normally for all my TY discs. My specs are Intel Centrino processor 1.60Ghz 589Mhz, 512 ram, 80gigHD, XP sp2. Firmware on the 716 is 1.08.
What could possibly cause this I've heard ppl talk about how great TY's are but I never get those results. The media I get the best result with are Maxell DVD-R(MXL RG03). Even on those the PIE's are pretty high but the TA test are always excellent or v. good.
Could I have a bad drive?
