There are some very silly people in most forums, as an electronic engineer I can tell you for certain
When you flash a firmware, it either works or it doesn't, if it works it can be for DOS, or safe mode or windoze, there can be no difference. If it fails then you may have to try one of the other 3 flashing methods. If you think you can get different "qualitys" of flashing, you are either silly or delusional.
When you write a disk, and you find most of your burns work, at a particular speed, this is an indication of your hardware setup is effective. One dye type of media failing (where all else work) can only have one of 2 causes.
1 Faulty media
2 buggy firmware
the media I am using works in other writers, so I can conclude the media is not at fault.
So the only option left is buggy firmware. That all FUJIFILM03 all failing at 1% indicates an erronius writing strategy for this dye type, but some people report success with this dye type, so what can be the cause? Does anyone in the UK have success with these disks. Datawrite 8x hub printable FUJIFILM03 or Bulkpaq Orange 8x FUJIFILM03?
