I’m currently running a Sony DW-U18A@832 and recently bought some Sky (Prodisc R03) media at Compmedia (since their Baldwin Park storefront is a mile away). As the term says, “If it ain’t broke, why fix it” but I’m wondering if I’ll benefit in any way to the CG5G/CY58 firmware releases and if so, which one. Here’s my recent KProbe on this media:
Looks good at the moment. Just save your EEPROM with the [thread=112103]EEPROM Utility v2[/thread] first and then try the later firmwares. If they don’t work as well then restore the EEPROM and flash back to CG3E
for me, best firmware for my Liteon 832s is VS0B
What firmware versions have you tried and, how’s it do with Ricoh media?
I tried all original and hacked firmware but I optained the best quality results with VS0B firmware on my original Liteon 832s.
I get the best results with the VSOA firmware, but havent tried the VSOB firm though for the liton 832s.
I have an 451@832 with CG3G.
The CG3E was slowing my drive down, while CG3G did not. And G burned the disc a little better too.
To the topic poster, I would keep the fw. I mean, that scan is almost perfect. If you do want to try another fw, save the EEPROM before flashing a new fw into your drive. Not satisfied? Put everything back on
And that with Prodisc… Some people get all the luck
Have you burned Ricoh discs with that drive & fw?
When I bought my 832S I gave my 451 to a friend.
I may be advising her on FW, so just wondering.
