Still don´t know why things like this happen. 4x CLV, the laserpower should be never change with it.

Maybe the laser power is constant but not the dye thickens…

I have this problem also with some other media and this writer, very different quality in different areas with same speed.

Very old writer

This is an infamous and very obscure writer. Could you post more test results with different media types?

I will try :wink:

But already had some coasters which can´t be scanned because if write canceling or hanging at leadout

Bought this drive for some € used, dunno if it´s a real bad writer itself or is much used/dirty
