I was finally able to get some Taiyo Yuden discs in the Netherlands (100 for 45 euro), but I am not very pleased with them so far. I tried two discs and both reached speed 3?x and then dropped again, at the end of the disc only reaching 39x instead of 52x with other discs (Platinum, Philips) on my LiteOn LTR-52327S with firmware QS0B. The discs were sold as 52x (and are identified like that by SmartBurn).
I thought both disc and drive were very good, but now I have my doubts about these rather expensive TY discs.
Are disc and drive not very compatible?
This is how the discs are identified by SmartBurn:
- Code: Select all
Drive Type = CD-RW
Disc Type = CDR
Material = Cyanine
Lead In = 97:24:01
Lead Out = 79:59:72
Nominal Capacity = 702.83MB
Manufacturer Maybe = Taiyo Yuden Company Limited
SMART-BURN Speed Limit = 52X (Write)
