812S - Slow Burns at 8X

I seem to be getting slower than normal burns when I burn RICOHJPN01 at 8x.

It takes about 14 minutes at 4X and 10 minutes at 8X. The “Earlier Shifting” and “Force Shift” in OmniPatcher don’t seem to make a difference.

Am I missing something or do those speeds seem normal?

Thanks for your help.

10 minutes seem a tad bit much. My Ricoh R01 burns generally take me between 8:30 and 8:40. If you used 1.3.3 of OP, try repatching with 1.3.5 instead. Also, check to see if you are getting any buffer underruns during the burn (caused by the rest of your computer being unable to deliver data to the drive fast enough).

Code65536, you are a stinkin’ genius. :bow: :bow: :bow:

I took your advice and used OmniPatch 1.3.5, selected “Earlier Shift”, “Force Shifting”, and “Force re-calibration.” I also disabled my anti-virus software during the burn.

This time, the burn took 8:41. Many thanks.

Oh, and best of all, the quality of the burn is fantastic. I attached the Kprobe scan so you can see for yourself.

Thanks for all your help, this is a great forum! :cool:
