Flashing the speedpatched firmware didn’t increase the rip speed of the drive vs. the original firmware. Is the speedpatched firmware supposed to function w/ an external USB drive or just internally?
It worked for me and I just crossflashed my 1640 over to a EW164B. I just ripped a disc at 15+x.
But is your drive internal or external?
A EW164B is nothing more than a 1640 in an external enclosure with modified firmware.
I am using it internally and I am getting good results with it like this so far. Maybe if you are using it externally there are some limitations due to usb or the external case.
That’s what I was hoping to find out. My internal 1640 also rips like a champ. Any “real” 164B external drive users have any experience w/ the speedpatched firmware . . . ?
Which burst rate does nero cdspeed display ?
20 MB/s. This is with the BEGB stock firmware, which I reflashed to after the speedpatched FW only gave me 7.6 max speeds, no faster than stock FW.
OK, forget it.
