hey daniel thanks for your input. I am going to start burning some movies printing them and storing them. I will update you in a year
a I hope you live in the US Quality media has gotten as cheap as well cheap media, Rebranded TY is available all the time now for .40 cents a pop, if not less. In the last two months I have gotten Sony, TDK, Fuji all Taiyo 30-40 cents.
Now printables, you still got to go to supermediastore, but prodisc 8x+ is still only 39 cents plus ship
UPDATE: Alright I crossflashed to T9 then reflashed to official P9. Then burned a disc, it seemed to burn greatm it even passed the verification, but when i ran the PI/PO test IT FAILED, meaning it stopped seemingly 3/4 of the way through I ran a CRC error scan, and it pretty much stopped at around the same spot, is showing 800 errors, and it doesnt seem it is going to stop anytime soon.
SO BUYER BEWARE: I love prodisc, but I would be mindfull when burning their R04 r- discs. It could be they are just "bad" discs. I remember reports of bad batches from prodisc and ridata these last six months.
I also recommend to you mass movie burners, like me, that you have your burner program do a data verification at least on 10% of your burns, I always have with my backups. That and CRC scan were my only defense till I got benq. If you dont do the verification than at least do the PI/PO scans, which is probably silly of me saying on this site
My only troubleshooting options left are to try my retail benq drive, and try another spindle of the same discs, which i am sure I have (I buy in bulk)
Thanks for reading, enjoy your working machines(I have other problems too)
Have you hugged yours today, you never know when it might fail
