[QUOTE=RIA77;2634066]I tried different media and different recording speed,maximum quality that I got was 93%.
Speed of scan is 4x,scanning interval 1ECC,test length - accuracy.
Someone said that not every Optiarc 7208s is flas-able,only OEM drives,i think.
I bought the drive separately,not with the brand name PC.
Checked official Optiarc site,there is no new FW,1.01 is the newest FW,and I got that FW in my drive.
I am wondering if flashing to 1.20 FW would raise quality test of discs ? I am just stucked to 93% or even less,at nero Disc Speed.
Thank you very much.[/QUOTE]
With me it’s a similar story… only my Quality scores are often as low as 40 for Verbatim 16x DVD-Rs (I tried burning at 8x instead of the Max 20x. Usually the quality scan reports a big cluster of high PI failure spikes that ruins an otherwise reasonable scan). I’m just hoping for a Quality score of 90 or more. On the other hand, with Taiyo Yuden 8x discs, I usually get Quality Scores in the 90s. So I’ll try flashing to 1.20 FW. (ps. the Transfer Rate tests always look great for those Verbatim discs so I don’t know what to believe).
