lite-on 811 + BENQ 8XDVD-Rs (FUJIFILM03) WOES

Hi,

I ordered the 200 pack of Benq 4X DVR-Rs hoping to get the sony04 types, but I was shipped 8X benqs. They happen to be fujifilm03s, which are identified at writing at a max of 2x in my lite-on 811 (speedhacked). What horrible luck! I'm using the latest firmware too.

I searched out a post here and some scattered across the internet saying lite-on drives hate fujifilm03 media.

I was happy at first they sent me 8x instead of 4x discs, now I am not so happy.

Anyone else this unlucky?


Later,
William
