Can MCC 003 be burnt at 12x or 16x with 1633s?

Can MCC 003 be written at 12x or 16x with 1633s?
i burn it now at 8x, and results are great, if i enable (with OP) 12 or 16, will it work? anybody tried this before?

Works quite well at 12X but I haven’t gotten anything at 16X meets the 280/4 PI/PIF benchmark.

Thanks a lot, i’ll try one…
but did you enable higher speed only, or also switched strategies?

Swapping strategies only made things worse. The burn I posted is typical of what I get using the stock strategy and just enabling the higher speed with Omnipatcher.

I also just obtained my first batch of MCC004 and I will post a few scans from that after I flush the eeprom and let the drive learn this new media.

just bought a little spindle of the verbatim 8x compatible with 12x hardware disks…to my dissappointment dvdinfo pro only recognized them to a strategy of 8x on both nec3500 and liteon 1633x…they were indeed mcc 003

decided to check them out cause the mcc004 are more expensive right now and these might be an alternative to the mcc004 :frowning:

i found also a seller (store) on ebay selling Verbatim 12x, picture are for those 8x…

yes there is an orange sticker that says compatible with 12x hardware…but I havent found that it is recongized with the liteon 1633s or NEC3500 firmwares that I currently have.

when i get the time i will use omnipatcher with the liteon and give it whirl…supposed to get the Benq 1620 tomorrow maybe it will recognize it

Is MCC004 that expensive? I got my spindle of MCC004 for about $22 (for a pack of 25). Less than $1 USD per disc.

In the original 1213 with TSO9, MCC003 was recognized as 12X but in every flash since then you must do the speed hack with Omnipatcher.

here in italy DVD’s are so expensive, the spindle of 25 disc 4x Verbatim is 50 Euro (also others: philips, etc), i buy from, the Verbatim 8x spindle of 25 is 19.99 euro (+ 10 shipping), and on nierle there is no 16X media (even those spindles are hard to find, most of the time they are not available).

At circuit city mcc004 verbatim 16x are going for 25/$35
at best buy mcc003 verbatim 8x(12xcompatible) 50/$45

so far i havent found the verbatim 16x anywhere but circuit city

NEC 3500 is not able to overspeed MCC 003 at the present moment. However, the BenQ 1620 does it @ 12x quite well. I’m not sure about the LiteOn though. is where I got my MCC004 for less than $1/disc. Circuit City is not known for its good prices. :stuck_out_tongue:

i found these while i was browsing a hot deals site. $30/100 seems pretty good

these have been reported to be both prodisc r03 and mcc03

:cool: i just burnt a MCC 004 (verbatim dvd+r 8x) at 16x in 6 mins pif average is 68 pie average is 68 is that good or bad? im a newbie

^^Not very good.

That says MCC03…not MCC04

@ cbourl, you better download KProbe 2.4.2 or Nero CD/DVD Speed and rerun the test. :wink:

Yeah, right now we don´t know for sure if the media he is using is MCC-003 or -004. :cool:
Anyhow, you must be lucky when overspeeding MCC +R´s in general. My experience is; disc not playable, if burned above “rated” speed…

@cbourl after d/l Kprobe 2.4.2, scan at 4x and save results as .png file using the diskette icon in the upper right corner.
