Yo, I have read the posts above. Have you read any of my posts? I’ve said multiple times now that my 1640 is burning unsupported 4x media great, don’t you find it a bit odd that TYG01 is giving you errors and will not even burn? I ask this in the general theory that high quality media would at least be burnable, given the fact that other unsupported discs, including crap, burns fine. AGAIN, THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO WRITE STRATEGY SHOULD NOT BE REASON FOR QUALITY MEDIA LIKE TYG01 TO BE COMPLETELY UNBURNABLE… With crap media I can understand, but with TYG01?
My point was simply that it seems VERY strange that good media like TY would give severe problems, it’s strange that yourself and others have found this to be an issue with this media.
To illustrate my point, in contrast to TYG01 being unburnable:
Unsupported SKC 4x on Benq 1640, a great scan considering it is crap media:
Unsupported RICOHJPN R01 disc I just burned on Benq 1640 at 4x, the PIF spike at the edge was caused by a scratch on the edge of the disc, the PIFs were below 400 until the spike at the edge. Also an average jitter of 7%, the lowest jitter level I’ve EVER burned by far. P.S. - that’s what these discs for sale are, for anyone wondering about their quality.:
AGAIN, I find it baffling that TYG01 is unburnable despite having no write strategy, as you can see it not only burns other unsupported discs I’ve tried, it excels at it. I’m not questioning that it is an issue, I’m just commenting how strange I find it.
P.S. - sorry chas and bigmike for wandering off the subject of the thread, I was getting carried away with how odd I found that TYG01 would cause such severe issues on the 1640, I just wanted to share that I hadn’t had anything approaching the TYG01 issues with other unsupported discs, so it seems very odd that it occurs with some of the best media available.
