im really sorry to bother you, as i hate to register at a forum only to ask help.
also sorry for my english:
i bought that sony which is a 5232k liteon
the problem is… it fails 100%.
the store is really far away from where i am, so i need to make sure the problem is from the unit it-self
first i used a sony at 52x and it failed near the middle [50%]. i was like ‘errr, maybe at 48…’
sony @ 48x = coaster. [write error]
‘maybe its the brand?’ [sony never NEVER failed at 52x on my ol’benq52x]
Verb. Datalife @ 48x = coaster. [write error] “ok 32x is not slow anyways”
32x=coaster [write error/fixation error]
TDK @ 24x = coaster at 90% [write error/fixation error]
the second one reached 100% but hanged on ‘leadout’. it IS readable. but barely.
but when i put a mitsui gold i had for years [its a relic ] and it FAILED at 8x i knew something is REALLY F**** up here
what is supposed to be? lets see
Dma ON [on all drives]
i tried nero 5.5 [again, never failed with my benq] and last 6.3
i did read on the faq that ‘some liteon drives has a problem with Sao/Dao. try Tao’. I tried tao = write error/fixation error. it also says ‘use RAW’ but i cant find a way to use it instead of s/d/tao.
again, im sorry to bother, but i really need to know if the drive is fubar[??] before i go to the store with a baseball bat thanks
