[QUOTE=Arachne;2096802]Welcome to the forum
Since you have a LiteOn, try the Disc Quality Scan at 4x scan speed.
Transfer Rate Tests are important IMO, but with LiteOn drives, they’re generally too good at reading to be completely trusted for TRT.
Having said that, it’s better than nothing at all so, can you do something for us?
Run the Transfer Rate Test again, and once it’s done, save the picture by clicking the little floppy-shaped icon in the top right of the window.
Save it as a .png file, and attach it to your next post here (Go Advanced -> Manage Attachments).
Edit: Nevermind, you’re using Vista, there is no floppy-shaped icon with that.
Then we will have a better picture of what you’re talking about :)[/QUOTE]
Hey thanks for replying! I have run the Transfer Rate Test at 8x and I got the same funky looking graph that I have been getting since last night.
Basically, the TRT is bad when I use Memorex DVD+Rs. I burned a Sony DVD-R today and it passed the TRT easily. Only thing odd about all this is that up til last night I had been using the Memorex DVD+Rs and they WERE PASSING the TRT perfectly. What is going on? Does my DVD burner suddenly NOT LIKE Memorex DVD+Rs?
When I run the TRT, my drive speeds up very fast for a second, then slows down. This pattern repeats a few times then the TRT graph starts to look like it normally should.
What thoughts do you have on this?
Here is what the TRT graph looks like when I tested the memorex DVD+R media:
I have also attached the TRT graph when I tested the Memorex DVD+R media.
I appreciate your thoughts on this issue,
