Yes it’s a pressed Store bought scrambled disc. When I tried to do the test it came up with error scrambled sector or something like that so I opened the disc with DVD Shrink for a couple of seconds and then it allowed the test. Both zevia’s rips are quite a bit faster than mine.
The Benq 1640 takes over the crown
The images show a DVD-ROM-DL having PTP, but this does not influence the speed. Scans done on a patched Benq 1640 and a patched 1620 for comparision.
BenQ 1640A FW BSHB, speedpatched
DVD capacity: 7.84 GB
Max Speed: 15.50x
By a convincing margin!
Ah, I just see ala42 scans.
Thanks to ala for the 1640 speedpatch:

here, the Benq is slightly beaten by the Aopen.
Let’s try this one…
1213S@1653S (yea, that’s right… an old drive that I picked up last summer, not one of those new-fangled 93S drives)
Disc size: 7.53 GiB
Not quite as fast as the 1640, but it ain’t bad for this old clunker. This is actually my very first time ever benchmarking a 16x -DL rip. I never liked the sound of the motors at 16x, so I never bothered to try before. Not bad for a first try…
is it possible to let’s know your system configuration that produces this type out pasting speed; this is fantastic ripping speed I have never seen this speed for D/L. I also wonder if you get this speed for protected disc (DVD Video) or none protected one.
Crossposting not allowed. hehe…
Anyway, what’s the movie title? Strange that the layer break is not exactly in the middle of the movie, or is not uncommon?
Yea, well… uhm… uh… I guess I should punish myself for breaking that rule.
This is a commercially-produced DVD, so yes, it has CSS protection. In my past experience, CSS protection hasn’t affected rip speeds before. It’s the Director’s Cut of The Last Emperor.
As for my system specs, it’s really quite modest. I primarily use my 1673S@1693S, so I’ve relegated my old 1213S@1653S to one of my older PCs. 1.4 GHz Tualatin Celeron, 384 MB PC100 RAM, i815 chipset with default MS drivers.
You guys are making me feel little.
I can’t beat those speeds, I’m not even coming close.
Drive: BenQ 1640A
Firmware: BSHB, MCSE speedpatched
DVD capacity: 7.87 GB
Max Speed: 15.61x
This drive has huge potential :).
Maybe because your disc is only 5Gb and the others are all >7.5Gb.
I really think this guy is joking
Congratulation to the new speed champ.
maybe because the DVD I have been ripping is a film of Buster Keaton ?
or maybe because I have been a teacher at the “CollÃ¨ge Langevin Wallon” at Saint Gratien (95) ?
hopefully a nice full read speed firmware can be created for this drive, but for the moment this is what it can do (thanks c0deguys! )
Drive: Lite-on 16P9S
Firmware: Experimental c0deguys firmware
DVD capacity: 7.86 GB
Max Speed: 15.53x
(duration is only 10mins because read back on the second layer is limited to ~13x?)
