I have 2 SH 222AL drives (yes i am one of the fools who bought it thinking i could easily modify the drive since it was a samsung)
I am using the drive stock, and I notice a few issues
I only use Verbatim DVD+r and alwasy burn at 8x
with these drives the burn stays at 4X for about 1:45 before it creeps up?
barely gettting to 8X
firmware on drive is SB01
The system is a DELL optiplex C2D 2.7 8GB DDR2 RAM 585W PSU Win7x64
is this normal?
is this a drive issue?
when i look at the burned side of the disc i can see “banding” (like different rings of darker and lighter purple)
