Changing NEC DVD±R write strategies (results thread)

The purpose of this thread

The purpose of this thread is for people to post results of their write strategy changes. The idea is that people can look at this thread and find out what write strategy replacements might be worth trying.

Posting guidelines for this thread

1/ Please, results only! Questions, comments, suggestions, etc., should be posted elsewhere where appropriate, in the media forum, in a thread of its own, etc.

2/ Please provide detailed information! This includes the media code (the media code block is not necessary, but please do include the media code revision, as provided by DVD Identifier, general information about the media (e.g., for Verbatim media, where it was manufactured is relevant, and for Ritek media, its media grade is relevant), the drive and firmware used to burn, the speed of the burn, and of course, the write strategy that you used (that’s the whole point of this, eh? ;)).

3/ Feel free to post any result that you get! Even if it’s a bad result, you can post it so that people will know not to try it. And please don’t hesitate to post results that are similar to what other people have gotten! It’s very nice to have multiple people post about a certain replacement so that the readers can get a confirmation that things really do work (or don’t work).

The layout of this first posting was adapted from the Liteon/Omnipatcher thread Changing DVD±R write strategies (results thread)

Check the MediaCodeSpeedEdit support for NEC DVD-Writers thread to find out how to apply the neccessary changes to your firmware.

@ScorpioSoft
You should enable the Options->Transfer Rate->Include test data option so that the actual writespeed is shown in the quality scans. Please :slight_smile:
