Then I get around 5000 C1 and no C2 errors. I'm starting to think I have a bad drive on my hands here. I'm getting these types of burns with the Fuji 48X (TY), Memorex 48X (CMC), and sometimes with the Maxell 48X (Ritek).
Or could it be the QS08 firmware? I never tested discs with the Q304 firmware that it came with.
I've discovered that there are more than one species of Ritek.
For Instance here in Israel i've witnessed the vanishing of SilverLine Media (Which is produced by Ritek) and the entrance of new media called CityDisc (Also fabricated by Ritek). I could see that the media was made exactly in the same factory or at least by same standards. Well, alsmost.
Well, the spindle smelled the same (and believe me, you can't go wrong there), it had the same packaging, discs color was the same and even the logo was sketched in a way which resembled SilverLine's logo.
The only thing the differed was the Quality and after seeking diligently i have found a serial number on the inner tube that wasn't found on the SilverLine media.
SilverLine Audio burned at 12X:
