if you update your firmware is it than possible that efm encoding

is supported or has it nothing to do with your firmware.

maybe i have a chance hehe :cool: :rolleyes:

hi,

i cannot really answer your question,

but a long time ago, there was a man called “LocotusOfBorg2K” around the CloneClinic forum. He was a chemical expert, or something. And he worked on a (possible) solution to “patch” the firmware on a writer to record the EFM correctly.
Also someone called “CaptainTrips” allegedly had an easy method (I don’t know if this is true).
I have no idea if they reached their goal …

The “joke” is, that a writer (like PlexWriter PX-W1210A/S) which writes the CD, so that only the writer itself can read the disc properly, MUST write the EFM in some way “correctly”. Otherwise neither a CD-ROM nor a Writer should be able to read the disc anymore (correct me if I’m wrong).

Because we are on topic now, I wanna ask all of you, who have the luck to own a writer which doesn’t need “amplify weak sectors”:

Are copies made with them real 1:1 ???

Because if you record your image with AWS enabled, and compare this copy with the original, you’ll get binary differences :-[

Hi!
My Plex24 are able to back up SD2 without AWS enabled in new CCD4, if I enable it the game doesn´t install.
I have only tried with an older SD2 version 2.05.030.
Have not tried in my Scsi Plex12, but will give it a go this weekend…if the weather is bad:-)

If you get one or two green dots at elby.org you shouldn’y use AWS

@little-endian

I have a LiteOn LTR-40125S which should be able to write EFM correct. (I haven’t tried it myself.) But I can give it a try!

@C4a0s

According to several users on this forum all LiteOn’s faster than 16 speed can do correct EFM encoding. If you want to know more: check the LiteOn forum. Especially the moderator OC-Freak knows a lot about this subject.

If you bothered to use the search function you’d find the answer: it’s “yes” for both

For all drives I know it has nothing to do with the
firmware, and based on technical considerations
I’m pretty sure it’s the same for all drives I don’t
know.
