After 1 week of extreme testing (burned ± 30 coasters of 5 different brands).
I must conclude the following :
All my burns went OK , but afterwards the discs were unreadable in my LG DVDROM , even in my BTC burner !!! and also in my xbox and standalone dvd player. I used firmware 0047 and nero 184.108.40.206 and stomp recordnow max 4.5 and alcohol 120% 1.4.7.build 1005 .
The conclusion of all this frustration is the following : sad to say but the drive is shit ! I did not know they still made this kind of drives… it’s just like it’s one of the first dvd writers in the very beginning … damn . So tomorrow I will return 3 of these worthless drives back to the store and gonna ask for a refund. In the meanwhile i’m burning with no problems with my toshiba sdr5002 (± 1year old) on every media i have here. Princo 4x media , Leaddata , no name very cheap media. Ofcourse only on 2x BUT AT LEAST IT WORKS !
So this thread is just to warn you guys who are looking for a 4x burner , just go for something else like pioneer , sony or something , that’s what i’m gonna do !
