Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R (MIT)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZD8112-DVR-J47F4
Hub Serial: 6202E2013-05755E14
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: Auto
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

I swapped out with my other 755SA to test the same media under the same conditions. Burning the Prodisc MCC 16x -R with the default firmware strategy proved no problem for this drive.

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R (MIT)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZD8112-DVR-J47F4
Hub Serial: 6202E2016-05752E14
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: On (Forced)
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

Forcing AS to create a new strategy changed very little; if anything the quality is slightly worse than the previous burn.


#263

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R (MII)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZD9011-DVR-J47C1
Hub Serial: 7135 511 -R E D 13830
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: Auto
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

Surprisingly, the MBIL media didn’t fare well at all on auto mode.


#264

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R (MII)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZD9011-DVR-J47C1
Hub Serial: 7135 511 -R E C 13831
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: On (Forced)
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

AS made a marked improvement here, although this is pretty much how these discs burn on other drives without any sort of enhanced OPC. I wonder if the wrong strategy was used in the previous burn.


#265

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R (MIU)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZE0648-DVR-J47C1
Hub Serial: B1FT A01A J708101716 A41
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: Auto
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

High PIE rise at the end, but otherwise normal.


#266

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R (MIU)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZE0648-DVR-J47C1
Hub Serial: B1FT A01A J708101722 A14
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: On (Forced)
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

Again, AutoStrategy made little difference.


#267

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R white inkjet hub printable (MIT)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZD9912-DVR-J47F4
Hub Serial: MAP6B5L130125627 2
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: Auto
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

These printable discs obviously have an issue at the outer edge, though I wonder why PowerRec didn’t lower the speed sooner to avoid such poor quality.


#268

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD-R white inkjet hub printable (MIT)
MID: MCC 03RG20
Stamper Code: ZD9912-DVR-J47F4
Hub Serial: MAP6B5L130125731 1
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: On (Forced)
Burning Software: Opti Drive Control 1.51

I suppose you could call this improvement :eek::Z At any rate, I’ve sufficiently proven than there is no problem with the 755SA’s write strategy for MCC03RG20, it’s drive #1 that has the issue.


#269

Burner: PX-755SA TLA #0002 (#108094)
Firmware: 1.08
Media: Verbatim 16x DVD+R white inkjet printable (MIT)

Hub Serial: PAP641NH31055561 6
Burn Speed: 16x
PowerRec: On
AutoStrategy: Auto
Burning Software: PlexTools Professional XL V3.16

I think this is the first time I can recall a 16x DVD+R burn getting Excellent on all the TA tests. If it weren’t for that PIE mountain at the end of the disc this would be about as close to a perfect burn as you can get.

This drive is actually a 760A I pulled from a 755UF that I purchased from eBay, but it has 755A firmware so is limited to 16x. So far its burn quality is about the same as the TLA #01xx 760-series drives I have.

This was actually the first burn I did after clearing out the AS database, hence an entry was created for the MID. No complaints here; then again this IS a 2004-manufactured disc.

Not sure what went wrong with this one.
