Well, at least the company is trying. While it adds more media support, I wonder if it addresses any of the issues in OC Freak’s review of the 1108.
Thanks for the update
Somewhat interesting that some media that was added back in the xx58 series is now added in the xx59 series. I think the write strategy has been changed a some of the medias. Duplicates that I saw with a quick scan are the AML001, TDK002 & MPOMEDIA080. Would be interested in picking apart the firmware to see what was changed for these.
I used the 0059 for a 4x write to DVD+R CMC 4x media. The write went fine and the disc plays well. I think that some of the write strategies were changed, but how do we confirm it? It is not listed in the change log.
compare the results with burns on older F/W using nero cd/dvd speed disk quality test.
I’ll give it ashot when I get a chance. What am I looking for? Could the write strategy change, but the scan remains the same or very similar?
My scans are virtually identical - but i have only burnt DVD-R at 4X and made that comparison.
