[QUOTE=Dan Allis;2158581]However, when I open up the firmware using OmniPage, it doesn’t show/list the Ritek F16. It lists Ritek P16 and other Ritek dvds.
So, how do I go about boosting the speed on this particular dvd? Or, How do I include it into the firmware?
I checked CDFreaks for a possible solution. But did not see anything on this delima.
Use MCSE (Media Code Speed Edit) to add/swap write strategies for your Ritek F16 - it seems like your drive’s firmware uses 8x as a default max writing speed for unknown media. The F16 is one of the recent dye formulas that Ritek has, and actually burns well with newer writers, and scans look decent. Can’t say enough about longevity as I’ve used F16s for less than 9 months but I can say that there’s no apparent degradation as compared to G05 media.
