OK i have recently upgraded my system by putting in a a new Hitachi 160gb Sata HDD, OS was wipped from the old drive and everything was re-installed and as far as i can tell everything is the same version that was on there previously.
now i have gone from this.
To (see attachment).
Same spindle of 100 Ritek G04’s that i bought over 3 months ago.
just spaztacularly crap burns.
I have tried Downgrading to FS0F from FS0J And back again, and then to zebra mod to 811s and try HSOP, still the same crappy burns.
Even a burn on my RIcho +RW that came with the drive is now comming up crap.
the last 1gb of the disc is basicly not readable at all and when burnt at 4x there is a realy wierd discoloration about 1cm from the inner media.
any ideas ? ive yet to try some other media, but ive already wasted like $15 bux worth of media trying, im about to just give up and buy a new burner and save this for reading/cdrw only.
