Report your media that do not work at certified speed in Lite-On drives here!

1: I’m again bashing Lite-On to add more media support, so I need codes that do not work at certified speed.
2: I do only want those that will not allow right speed choice, I do NOT want report on media that works bad (but at correct speed).
3: Use http://DVD.Identifier.cdfreaks.com or similar and post the full media code. Also nice if you post the information from smartburn as shown below.
4: Make sure that you have the latest firmware for your drive before reporting here.
5: I already have these codes /media:

I have this ACME 1x DVD-R media, that works on Sony burners without any problems, but Lite-On 851S (GS0C) recognizes it as 2x (but it is 1x), so I can’t burn them in my Lite-On burner :frowning:

Try to burn it, although LITE-ON allows only 2X - it sholud be fine. …Lite-On (411 & 811) sucks burning at 1X - i.e. Generic Write Strategy.

like the majority of writers - Lite-On only allows 2x speed as the lowest speed with the later firmwares.

So I’m not interested in discs that works at a to high speed. I’m only interested in discs that works at a lower speed than they should.

Older fws. allowed to write at 1X only when the media code was unknown, but the result was almost always a coaster. So I think that LiteOn disabled 1X speed burn just to prevent this because 2X suites LDWs much better (but 4X is the best according to my KProbe scans)

Yes, but when I burn it at 2x, Nero can’t write leadout and the disk is unreadable

Not impressed at all LiteOn!

The media is certified to write @ 4x. A DVDInfoPro dump:

When I buy media rated at a certain speed - I expect it to work at that speed - just like the Pioneer A07 has shown with this same media!

This media refuses to write @ 4x. Only generic 2x will work using a Liteon 811S - HS0P
