[QUOTE=Skylon;2001605]CressidPa, why don’t you use the 9P57 version available on this site? Are you sure your 9P53 version works nicely with your A1 drive? As there are different LD firmwares out there, it’s better to use the correct LD firmware for the drive.[/QUOTE]
Thanks Skylon, but I wanted to use “similar generation” firmwares for the comparison (LL0C is June’07 and 9P53 is August’07). My main reason for doing this test is to see whether the newer build/smoother operating drive would translate in improved burns/scans, not really to compare firmwares :).
Being a September build I didn’t expect the 20A4P to have the new laser and indeed, there isn’t any “LD:SHARP” string in the 9P53.bin file. If I feel like it, I’ll still repeat the comparison with another MID, as one test doesn’t say much.
