xpsp1/p4-3ghz/800fsb/1gig ram.

secondary master, liteon 812s us0j , speedhacked with bitsetting too.

the princo's were apparently 'a-grade'. spindle of 10. two burns gave very similar results (first burn at 4x with us0f firmware) kprobe scan very similar.

both disks take along time to 'initialise' in windows, one does not even show a directory listing in explorer, it causes explorer.exe to hang, the other will give a listing, after a struggle, but upon trying to copy a file from the burnt dvd-r, it gives a data cyclic redundancy error or just goes veeery slow & somtimes timeout.


very unhappy with these media. going to try sourcing some TY(TDK/Verbatim/Sony) Maxell, or Ritek and hopefully much better results..

so long princo :cop:
