Getting a few problems with my New Lite-On 20A1P.
First thing I did when I got it was flash it with the latest firmware (specifically the fb/eos firmware thats here on the forum).
I can duplicate almost all of these problems.
Ultra DMA-Mode 4/66 doesn’t work.
I can write discs in this mode but it refuses to read any disc I give it (claiming some I/O error). I figure this might be happening because of the nvidia IDE drivers. I’m gonna re-format soon anyway so I guess I’ll soon find out.
Burning at 20x…
More specifically, burning at 20x on Ultra-DMA mode-2/33. It works fine with the mode described in Problem #1 however, I can’t read any discs then. So I think that #1 and #2 are related somehow.
That about covers it.
And with all these problems, I get my fastest burn time at 12x with Fast Burn on. 6:20@12x. The quality of the burn is probably better too.
Also, with the eos/fb firmware, is it better to turn on “Force Hyper Tuning” and “Online Hyper Tuning” or is it better to leave them off (for the quality of the burn). And I know to just keep overspeed on.
So, I figure (hopefully) problem #1 and #2 will resolve themselves when I re-formate and not install the nvidia ide drivers. cross-fingers
