just a quick question..i used to do a lot of helping here with omnipatcher etc and now could do with others help after purchasing a pioneer 111d (man i wish i'd have stuck with NEC :rolleyes: )
can anyone tell me the differences in write stragegies between those 2 firmwares as i am having an absolute nightmare burning ANY dual layers with this drive..so far i have wasted over 50+ blanks of all different kinds..i'm lucky if i get 1 in 10 to burn to 100%..now i aint stupid and know that i should be using verbatims but at the mo they are like gold dust in the UK..
i have narrowed the bad burnd down to ricohjpn dye of ANY kind (D00 D01 D02 etc)
what i would like to know is if there have been any new write strats around for DL on a 111d or if someone has made a quality firmware over speed firmware etc..
i am totaly new to the pionner scene but not new to the burning scene. i am tearing my hair out and thinking about RMAing the drive for a trusty NEC that gave me hundreds of thousands of burns with absolutely no probs at all..
cmc mag have been the most reliable so far but even that has 2 or 3 fails out of 10..
so could it be the firmware or could it be the drive and does anyone know when there will be a new OFFICIAL pioneer firmware upgrade..(shouldnt be long looking at the sheer amount of people having trouble with this drive. i mean ALL the ricoh even 8x branded ones only burn at 2.4x and most cheaper brands just will not burn at all. even though the same disks burn perfect in a friends nec and lite-on so it must be drive specific) come on pioneer pull your lazy fingers out..i dont care about lightscribe i just want the damn thing to burn lol
thanks in advance
