Drive: Lite-On 1673S
I've been experimenting with Omnipatcher for a while now, trying to swap strategies for MCC 003 (rated 8x, Verbatim:Taiwan) to get it to burn at 12 or 16x on the 1673S. Is there anyone out there who's had success, meaning <= 248PIE/4PIF quality???
I didn't save any scans, but here are some strategies I've tried. :
MCC 003 @ 12x = OK-BAD 793PIE/10PIF, 230.12Eavg/0.86Favg
MCC 003 @ 16x = CRAP! 1761/426, 330.15/28.35 : coaster, didn't finish reading
YUDEN000 TY02 @ 16x = CRAP! 1613/221, 539.70/92.65 : coaster, didn't finish reading
MCC 004 @ 16x = BAD 1103/27, 91.92/0.63
I burned 2 or 3 copies of the same movie (Lost in Translation) for each strategy tried, and the posted figures are the average for that strategy.
Please help! I've used up like 10% of my spindle trying to speed up this media. I don't want to waste anymore discs. If anyone out there has done it, please let me know what you did.
