I own a 851s ~10 months now. I try to by quality media (from the range available) and results were pleasing, i.e. TDK/Verbatim with PI/PIF well below 32/280 thresholds. Recently (~2months) the burn quality rapidly decreased. The quality media (TDK,Verbatim) hardly fit into acceptance thresholds (many exceeding), while low quality often fails during burn process. I tried to downgrade to GS0K but results got much worse.
From what I read on this forum I have the following options:
- bin the lite-on
- clean optical lens (how to do this?)
- reset EEPROM learned media
- fiddle with write strategies
- wait for new firmware
Please help me with the problem - any suggestions/new ideas?
I’m not an experienced user so please speak to slow and laud
Thank you in advance
