after succesfully fighting some configuration problems, I have my 811s basically apparently working properly.
now, though, I cant seem to make it record anything that any other machine can read. Most recent attempts have been to record a DVD-video. I have a spindle of Ritek -R G03 and a spindle of Ritek -R G04 that all worked perfectly with my previous burner until it just quit working one day. Now when I record on the g04 using Nero (22.214.171.124), the drive goes into write mode for a couple of minutes before I get an "illegal disc" error and failure.
The G03 makes the following, which is unreadable in my xbox (xbox read about 15 from this spindle recorded by my old burner), and plays in my apex 1100 until about halfway. B
I have HS0K firmware, 811s. Any thoughts? Ideas? Not sure where to go from here.
oh I just noticed that on the g03 kprobe, it only reads until 84%, and then has a message reading "031100 UNRECOVERED READ ERROR" at the bottom of the window (it doesnt show up in the attached graph).
Also, video recordings made with the +RW media included with the drive result in unreadable in xbox, sometimes partially readable in set-top player. I dont have a kprobe of that yet though - will run that momentarily.
Thanks for any thoughts.
