Hi all. I’ve recently picked up a LiteOn iHAS324 A, put the latest firmware on it, and generally I’ve been pretty pleased. The first image is the sort of thing it produces on an Intenso disc in about five and a half minutes.
However, the second attachment shows what it does with a standard CMC MAG M01. Pretty unbelievably awful in the first half though it seems to verify and play on standalones okay.
The last picture is a CMG MAG M01 from the same batch that was written with a Benq 1650 and read back on the LiteOn. A heck of a lot better than the CMC MAG M01 written on the LiteOn.
How can such a newer and supposedly better drive make such a bad quality disk? It seems to burning too fast or at too much laser power. The disk still seems to work, but obviously with this level of error, I fear that it’s life will be pretty poor. Or is this some kind of non-error? Are modern drives so good that they can live with this level of error in return for a faster burn speed?
I don’t see how LiteOn can strive to do such a good burn on the Intenso disc, and then it be acceptable to do such a bad burn on the CMC MAG M01. Any ideas what is going on and if it’s fixable? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
