I can confirm.
It has a terrible error correction for CD-RW.
But better than the Pioneer DVR-x07, which indicated “no disc” for CD-RW and “disc error” for DVD-R but reads DVD-RW. That Pioneer was used in a DVD recorder, so it never burned any CDs, despite the drive does not fail reading blank CDs. However, I adjusted the laser potentiometer up. Now, burning DVDs does not even start and only produce hiccups (I should not burn DVDs anyway with increased potentiometer) but all reading is fine again, except the error correction for pressed CDs deterioated. Too much reflection?
Back to S182, it burns CD-R, but fails burning CD-RW HS (others not tried). It can only erase CD-RWs. Even a normal burn finishes and leaves a visible trace, even at ×4 underspeed, but always results into blank CD-RW.
I am surprised, why DVD-R is detected as blank, DVD-RW however works perfectly (except RITEKW1 burned with SE-208DB).
