If it can be fixed, can someone tell me the steps i need to take in order to fix it. Maybe the thing to do would be to pressure the vendors to post the specs as read by DVDInfoPro or something in their ad, “This is the data read from this media”. Personally, I never use cheap media anyway, because I’m worried about the questionable longevity of cheap media who cares if it burns cheap media without coastering if the cheap media is such that ldw-851x will degrade in just a year?

Lite-on LDW-851S Firmware

On that note, I have used a pack of G04 discs, and they’ve burned just fine it was with later Ritek batches that I’ve developed a bad taste for their poor quality control. Ritek cd’s work well with the lite on?

RiData is Ricoh or Ritek, which is also decent media. Also think it may be the problem a lot of people here are basing their brickbats on for some media brands.
