I have been meaning to ask this for a while but have’nt got round to it. Now just bare with me for a mo one this one while i try and explain. Now i know when burning you get circles that are different shades due to the drive speed changing but with the Pio 111 i have noticed something while i get the circles like i did on the 109 i also get a kinda half circle pattern and sometimes a half circle that kinda spirales. These happen between the two normal circle patterns.
I have tried to draw these best i can as i cant really get a good image of the underside of the disc. The blue is the normal circle patterns i got with the 109 and what i get with the 111 this is also fairly light, hardly noticable. The red is the other part of the pattern(the spiral one i had to free hand). This you dont always get especial on the TY but on other discs i burnt like the CMC HP discs its always there, even the normal circles that i got on the 109 are dark and clearly visible on the CMC burnt with the 111. When this happens it can be light so hard to see unless held at an angle other times it is quite dark and clearly visible. Now this does not seem to effect scans or trt for most of the times, but every so often there will be a clump,well group of pif’s, only going up to 2 but will jump the total up a couple of hundred. I sure the groups making go up a couple of hundred is something wrong with the pio as from the disc’s i have scanned that i burnt with the 109 i never had this. Im convinced at the mo the 111 is not as good as the 109.
But with the strange pattern, is this down to the disc’s being burnt using Z-CLV ?? as the 109 used P-CAV. I find this pattern to look rather unsightly, this is partly why i ask.
I’m sure i remember reading on here someone with a 111 bought a second one because the they did’nt like the way the first was burning stuff. Although i cant remember who.
Thanks for listening, i dont normal type so much in a thread.
