Backstory: Burner was bought back in December, had problems, found this site in january, learned how to flash to a 1633s, worked great.
Now its being a total piece of shit, and i was getting extremely pissed off because i was trying to burn 2 debian sarge images and I couldnt freaken read my burns.
This is a Kprobe test of a disc i burned like three months ago, it is a 8x burned at 4x tested at 4x TDK CMC E01:
Below: This is a disc i burned like 2 days ago using the same media(TDK E01) as you can see from the screenshots(i have gone thru like 8 coasters now, data or video at 4x), my burner cant verify or read its own burns from these anymore. And if i can, they barely work only enought to scan like what i got below.
I also have a 50 pack cakebox of Ridata RITEK R03's that dont like my burner as well. It could burn to them before(with bad blocks usually), but now they cant be read after burning either.
Interestingly, i have 1 Ridata RICHO JPNr01 RW that a friend gave me that works perfectly. Is it possible that i got a mixed cakebox of half working TDK's and bottom half of coasters?
Oh! and the other reason im here is if anyone knows which media i can go pickup that will have a high chance of compatibility with my burner....
Thanks ahead of time.
