Anyway, I bit the bullet and bought another since the BTC was so awful… I tell you, I LOVE the 411S! It burns anything I fead it, and loves it!
I’ve done movie after movie. I’ve made compilations of MPG’s, etc…
The main reason I’m posting is to end the horror stories of -R and -RW media… ALL I have burned to is -R(W) discs, granted I am using the newest firmware, I upgraded immediately, and it works like a champ!
How about some media details - what brand are you using? So far, I’ve only tried 1 -R disc, a Princo 1X that works fine at 2X in my Pioneer 104 (I knew the word was the 411s didn’t like these discs but I had to test one for myself - it failed on lead out, wouldn’t read in my Mintek player, but suprisingly did work in my Philips player). Otherwise, I’ve burned Ricoh made TDK +R 4x and Fuji +RW 4x without a problem, and 3 CMC made Imation 2.4X +R (1 out of the 3 CMCs didn’t read well in my standalone player, burned the same image to another one and it worked fine- I suppose this is typical CMC inconsistency).
