Burning 4X Discs at 8x with LiteOn 1633s

#1

Hello,
I’ve read the Lite-On FAQ in which it says that to burn 4x discs at 8x one should use OmniPatcher, but I’ve also seen another thread in which people were reporting that they got the very best quality results with lowest errors using the BS41 firmware. My question is: is there any chance that mucking around in OmniPatcher in order to burn 4x discs at 8x will decrease the quality of my burns, and is there any way I can just burn at 8x without bringing OmniPatcher into the picture since I’m such a noob at all this anyway? Is it absolutely the case that stock BS41 firmware will not allow burning 4x discs at 8x?

thanks in advance.

is there any chance that mucking around in OmniPatcher in order to burn 4x discs at 8x will decrease the quality of my burns = of course there is a chance. media brands also affect burn quality.

as to your 2nd Q = buy 8x media. problem solved
