Recently tried Sony.710A.BYX5.patched-cf-mcled.rar on a virgin 1633S (never flashed). The firmware updated but find it just does not burn the cheap discs. Today I burned a CMC MAG. & FUJIFILM03 and while it looked as it had burned I could not read in my PC. Trying other discs like MUST 003 did not even start to burn and TTG02 produced numerous errors. Can I just reflash with 1653S.CS0P.patched-cf-mcled.rar without doing anything else? I used the BYX5 by just launching the .EXE and the flash installed without issue but I am rather confused about cross-flashing and if I need to uncross-flash. If anyone could recommend a good firmware that is more compatible with cheap media that would be ideal.
On a personal note, wow this drive is picky! Are all LiteOn’s like this? I mean I have old NEC1300A which burns everything I throw in it and gets really nice Quality Scans in CDSpeed to boot. Don’t mean to insult LiteOn fans, maybe it is me.
