[QUOTE=DoMDoM40;2624146]Hi Deanwitty, thanks for the reply:flower:, drive exact model is BW-12B1ST-23 manufactured in 11/2011 in Taiwan-China,
[COLOR=Navy][B]What the flashing would improve ?[/B] [/COLOR]and what firmware would be compatible (I am reading some [B]PL01[/B] and [B]PL03 /B and [B]CL0K[/B]), and is there anyway to check compatibility with the [I]codeguys.Rpc.org[/I] flashtool I loaded a picture of at my first post? pardon my confusion.[/QUOTE]
Unfortunately that drive is the newer version which can’t be crossflashed to a Lite-on with the current version of Flash utility. That may change with an update. You may have no need for it if we can discover the problem to be other than the firmware.
In the meantime, did you check for “streaming” and look to see what write speeds ODC and ImgBurn are reporting as possible for your BA5’s?
At the end of the day, ODC has proven to be a little weak as burning software, and a few of us have stopped using it for burning, using ImgBurn’s graphs to check for a smooth burn process and use ODC just for testing our burns.
