I had been buying RICOHJPN R01 discs branded Tevion. They were great, so I bought a whole bunch of them. Now, to my dismay, I see that Tevion has switched to RITEK R02 discs, and I can’t get a decent burn anymore.
I have firmware 159 and Nero 220.127.116.11. With the Ricoh discs I had been averaging around 2.5 PI errors and and 0.2 PI failures. With Ritek, however, I average around 140 PI errors (stable) and 6 PI failures, with maximum PI failures often spiking to 60 or 80, signficantly worse. All of the discs have played so far, but Nero gives all of them a quality score of 0, not particularly comforting.
Is there a way to get better quality out of my large stock of Ritek discs? Or should I just be happy that the discs play (so far anyway) and ignore Nero’s criticism of the quality?
