I have an NEC 3540a and I’ve seen and noticed that it’s not the best drive for scanning PIEs - but good Lord - mine are outrageous! I have never burned a disc with less than 100k PIEs. Only once have I burned a disc with <300k!
I’ve tried 4 MIDs: YUDEN000T02, RICOHJPNW11, CMC MAG. AM3, and CMC MAG. AE1.
I’ve tried different FWs by Liggy and Dee with no noticable impact. I’ve varied burn speeds with limited success.
What else should I be considering here? It might be worth mentioning some system specs:
640MB PC133 RAM
2 ATA-66 HDs (20GB system drive & 200GB media drive)
NEC 3540a DVD-RW
