Hope you all had an enjoyable Easter. I spent yesterday afternoon lying in the brilliant early spring sunshine instead of in front of the computerscreen, if you don't mind ; )
Regarding this issue, I found a page on a Taiwanese website where an enduser is discussing some fake RITEK discs.
(The pictures on the left are the "real thing", the one on the right is a very good copy.)
It doesn't explain why the V0043 would solve this problem, however, so I'm still anxiously waiting for some discs to test.
What I would like to know from all of you who have problems with your RITEKG04's, is the following:
What Nero version are you all using ?
(make sure that you're using the latest updates)
What exactly is the problem ?
Is it that you can't choose 4X in Nero, or (as some have noticed) that you choose 4X, but during burning the actual speed shows a lot less (I've seen people report 1.88X or something similar). Pls. send me a screenshot in JPG if you can.
Are you really able to solve this issue by going back to V0043 firmware ?
According to our engineers, the write strategy for RITEKG04 hasn't been changed for ages and the parameters in V0043 for this media are exactly the same as the ones for V0049/50.
- Try using your drive as the only IDE device on the secondary IDE port, so we may exclude any IDE device incompatibilities from causing this type of problem. Also make sure that UDMA mode has been enabled.
And last but not least, please list your mainboard also so we can see if your IDE interface have something in common.
Tks. in advance for any additional information regarding this issue.
