I know this media is rated 8x, or at least that’s how RIMA sells it, but I have an NEC 3550A at work and using the stock NEC firmware, 1.05, it burns it at 16x. My 1635S, with the latest LiteOn firmware, won’t go past 8x. I know it’s reliable at 16x as I did a disc quality check with the NEC and got a 97 score.
Does LiteOn err on the side of caution here ?? I trust that once Omnipatcher works for the 1635S that 16x (and 12x) will be an option for this media or can this drive simply not reliably do this ?? Of course, no one knows, outside of LiteOn, at this point, do they ??
