I’m a visiting Plextorite and have a friend with a (somehow) new 401s. Here’s the problem:
So far he’s only burned CDs, but when he scans them with CDSpeed immediately after burning, it reports ridiculous C1/C2 error counts (peaks in the thousands for each); CDSpeed reports a Quality Score of zero. Now, if he waits 5 minutes and does the scan again, it reports a respectable ~1500 C1 errors total, no C2 errors, and a Quality Score of 94 to 98.
Anyone ever heard of this?
I suggested he use KProbe instead as it seems to be more “native” to Liteons than CDSpeed. He did that, but at some point, KProbe just starts saying error … error … error and the drive slows the scanning and starts making “strange noises”.
If it helps any, he’s using the factory-installed ES51 firmware, and I will be recommending that he switch to HS0K firmware. I also plan on reading up on such strange concepts as “Omnipatcher” and “EEPROMs” but I’d appreciate any advice/insight I can pass along.
