I got a 40125S flashed to 48125S with VS08. The drive hasn’t been performing flawlessly like I read everyone elses has. The biggest problem I’ve got with mine is the reading is inconsistant.
I just got some generic CMC discs with me which are supposedly 48x but I just burn at 32x and 24x. The burns are fine except when I perform a cd quality check with cdspeed. Some discs seem to be perfect while others get tonnes of read errors. Lately I’ve been getting more and more discs with errors. What’s odd is if I try the discs in anything else like my old Plextor 1210a or my Pioneer A04 they read fine without any problems.
I’d prefer to keep CAV writing rather than falling back to Zone CLV but I’m not even sure what the cause of the problem is at this time… any clues?
