So my concern is a spindle of Taiyo Yuden unbranded cd-r’s that I just bought. Here is a pic for reference. I have burned about 5 of them already and 4 of them shows major read drops in a read test done with Nero CD-DVD Speed (I did the same test with Kprobe too). In error tests done with Kprobe they showed good/ok results. Here are some scans. Has anyone else had any similar experiences? I thought that Taiyo Yuden CD-R’s are very high quality
3 of the burned discs contain imagefiles burned with clonecd and alcohol.
The fourth disc contains just some regular data burned with Nero. The fifth disc is a test data disc burned with Nero CD-DVD Speed and that one doesn’t show any huge falls in a data read test.
Also one very interesting thing is that the media info on these discs is (before burning) : Manufacturer = Taiyo Yuden Company Limited and after the burn it says : Unknown Manufacturer.
My drive is Liteon 451S @ 851S with GS0H fw.
Any help is greatly appreciated. I’m very confused about this. Just a bad batch or my drive doesn’t just support it? Which I think would be very odd.
So here’s a pic of the cd and then a readtest done with Nero CD-Speed and an errortest done with Kprobe. This is a imagedisc.
