I just bought a box of Sony -R 16D1’s (Made in Japan - Sony branded).
I’m using CS0R patched firmware. I’ve noticed that whether using CS0P or CD0R Codeguys firmware, I get much better scans on any +r media (whether CMC or TY), than I do with -R media.
Here’s my first scan for the Sony 16D1. While the q score is pretty good, the PIE’s are somewhat high. I always seem to get high PIE’s whenever I use -r media.
Why is it recommended to use a 4x speed for the Nero Disk Quality test when using a Lite-On burner?
I’ve seen some scans that show high quality scores for other manufactured drives even though the max PIF was very high. With Lite-On, the second the PIF max is over 4 or 5, the score dips greatly.
3)If the CS0R firmware makes the drive think it’s a 1653, then why is Nero only allowing me to burn the Sony 16x media at a max of 8x? The specs for the 1653 show a 12x max for -R disks. Is it something I have to adjust myself?
Here’s the scan:
