Wierd PI spike to 55 first thing on the graph, doesn’t show unless you turn on the “markers” in the settings, kinda skews the graph.

Liteon SOHW-812S, US0Q, 4.38GB

Media code/Manufacturer ID RICOHJPNW11
Format Capacity 4.38GB(4.70GB)

RICOHJPNW11 sold as RIDATA 4X
Burned on: Sony DW-U18A @ Liteon 832S (FW CG3B) at 4X
Burning program: growisofs 5.21 (Linux 2.6.8, Debian sid)

The first 2 are about 4.4GB, the last about 2GB.

The errors are because kprobe didn’t detect very well the size of burned data (it gets confused with DVD+RW?), they work just fine.




Burned on a BenQ DW800a with B3D7 dual firmware (burner sold under the KHypermedia brand name but with BenQ firmware). Media sold as Ritek RiData DVD+RW 4x, purchased as a sample DVD from http://www.blankmedia.ca, 2004/11/24.

Overall a very good burn, although not a full DVD (this is a scan of a real burn, not a test). I’ll be buying more. This burner loves all Ritek media that I’ve tried.

From the FORUM POSTING GUIDELINES:

Guidelines for posting media tests:

1) There will be threads for each media manufacturer, TY, RiTEK, CMC, etc they will also be split up in format and type (one for DVD+R, one for DVD+RW one for DVD-R one for DVD-RW for each manufacturer). Before posting, you must have your media’s ADIP information, and post in the appropriate thread for that media maker. If there is no thread for that maker, create one! Posting by the media brand, (Fuji, Memorex, etc.), will not be permitted in the media test forums, but may be discussed in the main media forum. Post only one test per post please! Testing should preferrably be done in the same drive your media was burned in.
2) The subject of your post must include the media maker and the media maker’s speed rating and the speed it was burned at.
3) The first line in the post must include the drive model used for burning, and firmware version. Also the size of the burn in Mb or Gb.
4)
Next you should post the ADIP
5) Now you should include which brand the discs is sold under and which manufacturer the discs comes from (for searching purposes), follow this with any relevant information like whether the discs is unreadable in some players etc
6) Finally post an image of the error scan if possible. In order to keep the size of the image to a minumum, we strongly sufggest saving it in “.png” or “.gif” format. You must have have a web host that allows linking for image posting to function, attaching the image file to your post will also work. If you are not able to post and link an image, you can contact me or rdgrimes about keeping your image on our server. Posts that have broken image links will be deleted.

:cop: All posts that do not conform to the above stated format may be deleted :cop:
