So since my burner was having some issues, I replaced it with a Pioneer 112 and some 16x Verbatim Media Mitsu Dye 004. My first burn at 18x fails outright. My second burn at 16x fails verification and the disc is unusable. CRC when copying back to hard drive from disk (wasn't a game, testing with other files before Wii games). However, it works properly at 8x. What the hell? These both are supposed to be the end all and be all of drives and media. I'm a little pissed and disappointed. I have heard others elsewhere say that it can take a few burns for a new burner to calibrate, etc, is this really true? I ordered a Lite-On SATA drive at the same time. I'm going to test them out for a little bit, and if the Pionner shit continues, then fuck them. Or I'll get a replacement and make sure that Newegg pays for shipping both ways. I'm tired of wasting money on coasters, etc. That is all. Comments?
