Wots the difference between resetting LEARNT media and resetting HYPER tuning !? Also, is resetting HYPER tuning more dangerous through that EEPROM utility!? I also like to know, why burns get wurse over time!? I mean, isnt the learning curve media = midcode related like ive read in certain posts!? I mean, doesnt the drive learn those strategys based purely on formats like DL+R/-R, DVD+R+/-R, DVD-R etc u know. Because, by now ive burned many DL verbatims mkm001 (most on 2,4x) whit SB_OHT or SB_HT_OHT = on all sort of combos!!! Now, from through out my scans the ones i burned whit SB_OHT and HT enabled wos the best based on average, max, etc errors… Now, i few weeks later i try the very same batch dual layerd verbatims whit the setting SB_OHT_HT. And i gett horrible PIF results of arround 30 - 70 ( ill show u whit some pics afterwards)
I took especialy 2 burns to be sure of this. But to no vail, all scans looks similar (horrific). But then i disabled HT, and OHT, just leaving SB on and the results were all of an sudden much much better… but still wurse then that one specific burn i took weeks earlier. And now i like to explain why i think that this learning curve is not midcode related but rather related to just a BLank Format!! Between that Good verbatim burn (weeks ago) and that bAD verbatim burn (a day ago or so), ive tested some other Ritek dual layers that turned out to be very bad. I made one coaster after another resulting in a write error, regardless of wot combo i tried, SB, OHT , HT no matter wot. Coud that beeing the cause of that!??
So, wot i actualy wanna ask is. Woud it help, if i only reset HYPER TUNING and not the Learnt media option through the EEPROM utility!? Because, i actualy think that this “LEARNT MEDIA option” is in any way related to that SmartBurn Feature one can enable or disable throug smartburn utility!?
