What is the best modded firmware for a Lite-On XJ-HD166s?
I would be most interested in maximal DVD rip speed / quality for pressed DVDs, though excellent DVD rip speed / quality for burned DVDn+/-R would also be important.
I have tried the modded firmware but noticed a speed decrease with pressed DVDs. So I came back to regular stock FW DS1E
@bichonnhave you had the lower-reading speed version?
I have tried it too and pressed disk reading speed slow down to 1x to a max of 4x
2/ DVD+RW and DVD-RW reading speeds3/ DVD-9 (pressed dual-layer) reading speeds4/ DVD+R DL (recordable double-layer) reading speeds (only for the SOHD-167T and XJ-HD166S)
which one have you tried?
No it's not normal. With the stock FW I can rip up to 16X (according to the pressed dvd). But of course it always starts between 2.5X - 3.5X and reaches the maximum speed at mid-disc (if it is a double layer) or at the end (if it is a single layer)
ChoKo, I have tried the ones with 12X, 14X, and 16X.
oh, 14x was working fine with my drive. now i use a toshiba sd-m1712.
