MID: CMC Type 0 97m26s60f

Burn Speed: 4x

The quality seems a bit better, though this is not a full burn like with the #0203 drive.

Different drive, same result :bow:


#363

Burner: Premium II TLA #0203
Firmware: 1.03
Media: TDK Reflex X Metallic 650MB 8x
MID: TDK Type 0 97m32s00f

Hub Serial: C0F14QF1039SL5 JFCJ
Burn Speed: 4x

Burning Software: ImgBurn 2.5.5.0

I think this TDK media preferred being burned at 1/2 its rated speed rather than 2x.

An even better result here, rivaling the TY scans.

Got two 50-disc spindles of Ricoh 8x CD-R from eBay; I’ve gotten a lot of nice old media from there lately (and I spy some more:flower:). I’m slightly disappointed in the increase in C1 errors at the end of the disc though this is still an excellent burn.

The AMQR-challenged “Premium 1.5” turned in a slightly better result.

Even though it’s really a Premium “1.5” this drive seems to be a better burner than the “real” Premium II.

The old PX-W5232TA really liked this media :bow:

Unfortunately the original Premium did the worst with these newer MBIL crystal CD-Rs out of the three drives.

I guess these 2011 discs don’t like slow speeds like 8x (referring to the C2 errors).
