Acko,
Wow that’s a great result. Can you be more descriptive though?

  1. What exact firmware/write strategy/auto bitsetting/hack did you do to get such great results?
  2. Where was the firmware downloaded from, liteon, dhc014’s, or omnipatcher?
  3. Are these the ritek RICOHJPNR01 from newegg?
  4. Do you use SPTI drivers or the APTI drivers?
  5. Was this a 411/811 or a real 811s?
  6. Did you burn and read both at 4x, or did you burn at 8x and read at 4x?

thanks

1.burned with HSOE stock f/w
2.f/w from liteonit.com
3.ricohro1s were arita dark and light purple top & some were siver top.these were from a computer market in the uk unfortuatly they are no longer avalible. iam getting some traxdata from cd-rmedia which are ricohr01`s.
4.kprobe i use aspi and always scan at 4X.
5.retail boxed LDW 811s.
6.burned at 4X scaned at 4X, i have burned at 6X & 8X but my setup realy is only good for 4X so i tend to stick to 4X as quality is the key.

i hope this helps, i`am currently re-educating my eeprom thanks to codeguys exelent tool.

I have a 812S@832S, using RICOHJPNR01 DVD+R’s from Traxdata and I get VERY high amounts of PI/PO errors (around 1000 mark!!!). I guess it’s the media…

johnsk have you had good results with different branded ricohs? i havent ordered the traxdata yet.from my experiance aritas are labled grade bs but out of the 4 types i`ve used they were all good quality and only got the odd coaster.

great info acko, thanks!!! That helps a ton.

I think that LiteOn just had alot of inferior drives released (411s, 811s). I’ve seen a few people that have had acceptable burns with the drive but It seems either it works well or it just sucks. I had 2 of these drives, One burned fine for about a hundred burns then it just took a crap. I have always been a LiteOn fan so I got another. And it sucked right off the bat. My brother got one and it burns real good. As for other hardware or system problems that might be the case in some instances but I think these drives are pretty bad as for quality control.
ps. I have been burning consistantly at 16X with very low pi/po’s with my new NEC wiith the same system and setup.

Have You Tried Ricohjpnr01-02 @ Mcc003-00 Strat?

I Read It In Another Post And Give Me Acceptable Results…

I can ensure you, RICOHJPNR01 will burn perfect on any Litey´ without strategy swapping. :smiley:

I’m having a hell of a time with ricohjpnrh (Ritek branded 4X) from newegg…
First 30 burned okay, and then next 30 had 1 good out of every 2… and now I’m having 1 good out of every 3… The rest have CRC errors on my Benq 1610 with firmware B8H9 through B8M9 tested…
