I have an old Lite-On LTR-24102B CD-RW drive which I thought was serving me well. I only burn audio CDs with Nero at 8X-16X. However, I just ran a Nero CD-DVD Speed Test which showed a whopping 194K C1 errors, and 44 C2 errors. This seems like a LOT of C1 errors when I compare my results with those I see posted on this board. I was using TY media, so I can’t improve on that. I believe it is genuine TY; Nero says that it’s TY and the MID from Nero is 97m24s01f. EDIT: The hub is printed with “80 PG7395” and stamped into the clear plastic is “KB640A0025080” in case this helps identify a fake disc.
Is this unacceptable performance? If you think I need a new drive, what should I get? I never burn DVDs, so that function is not important to me. I do rip CDs, which is something that I thought the Lite-On did well.
Thanks for your help.
