Tropics Drive Killing MCC003's

vbimport

#1

These are burns and scans from a crappy batch i received from member tropic.

All of these are PAH705KH21093828 BZ ZD3606-DVR-X47B Silver shiny

tropic says they are CMC’s but i have no original packaging.

First up are three 8x tests with the drives info in Nero CD-DVD Speed.

Then three 12x tests with drives info in Nero CD-DVD Speed

This is for tropic and mine reference mainly.

I might burn a few more with some different drives…

Interesting scans Bob, did you and tropic have a conversation in the forum about these discs somewhere you point me to? I obviously missed it :slight_smile:

I would be interested to read about it.

Thanks


#9

Can I ask what this is about?

From what I can see, it looks like you have some conflicting scans VS TRT results. High speed scans will even things up.


#10

After the last burn posted here and scan with one of my BenQ 1655’s it is dead now. It opens and closes but will not recognize a blank or burned disc. Coincidence?

Thanks[/QUOTE]MegaDETH it was discussed in chat here. Long story short…tropic could not get these to burn worth a crap and offered to send them to me. He has a dead drive also from his testing…


#12

After sleeping and thinking about this extraordinary phenomenon i’ve decided not to try anymore of these discs. I’m deffenantly not going to put anymore of them in [B]my [/B]drives.

Albert seems to be interested in being the next victim :bigsmile:


#13

I have quite good luck with discs. If I didn’t live in the UK, I’d quite like to be a “victim” too :bigsmile:

I know ;)…and I’ve got a spare Sammy sitting in the wings :wink:

And actually, the thread title could be taken that tropic’s drive is killing MCC003 also :flower:

Well at any rate i told him i would post my results/findings. I would have rather not have lost one of my BenQ’s to this and i almost didn’t use it for scanning…

I found out later when i stated testing the FTI samples i have here and went to use it for scanning one of them and it wouldn’t recognize the burned FTI but my other drives did. So put a different disc in it and still no go :sad:

Bob, cross-flash the drive to a 1650, and then back again to a 1655. See if that fixes the problem.

Have you cold-booted your computer since the problem arose (shut down, wait one-minute, then power-on)? If not, do that.

If the BenQ is in an enclosure, power the enclosure off or unplug it, wait one minute, then power it on again.


#19

No i didn’t cross flash it but yes my rig was off for 10+ hours, booted it up and i checked it again and still no go.

I took it out and put my other 1655 in. I’ll mess with it some other day. Thanks

8 or 9 of these discs left and they are going to another member to play with.

I’ve read stories here about discs killing drives and thought yeah right but now…I hope it’s just a coincidence.
