[QUOTE=lithiumus;2144072]Thanks guys. I was burning for months with almost 0 coasters until recently. I’ve gone through many 50 packs of Memorex and TDK with excellent quality burns (according to discspeed). All my burns were rated 95 and up… now my good DL burns are 70 with higher CI and PO errors.
Interesting that a new drive can use any media and burn fine but eventually deteriorate and now require Verbatim…[/QUOTE]
It is not really all the drives fault but the variance in the media of choice different batches of the
same brand can have big differences in quality. Okay say for instance you only use Memorex or
as some like to call them Memowrecks DL discs exclusively nothing else for 1 year you will find that
some batches of them just will not and can not burn as good as the other batches did because of
the variance of the manufacturing process. It happens with all brands of media +R -R +RDL -RDL
Verbatim, TDK, Memorex, TY, etc., etc., etc.
