Hi to all, i’m the owner of a Gigabyte w0404a (btc 1004), I red this forum first time few week ago to sort out problems with ritek go4 (burned at 2x)
I have been using ritek go4 since when I bought the burner (traxdata, SM and Arita media , always with the SAME media code, the thirth one reported in a previos thread), but with Arita I had velocity problem, so:
Nero updating to 18.104.22.168
fw from 0050beta —>0043
The Arita ritek burned with 0043 have the lowest PI than I have ever had (less than 100, verified with kprobe2, except the last 2% of the disc, often with a lot of error, but lucky always readable )
Now I have 30 more Arita disc to burn, but for the future I’d like to change dvd-r (TYD or MCC) to avoid the volatile quality of Ritekg04
At this time, is there any otthe more efficent solution than 0043+nero last version??
Can I use the fw of BTC drive?? (ex 0051) .Gigabyte fw page contain only 0043 fw and 0050beta(why beta ??) fw, the other (0049 0048) are deleted, and i don’t have it.
Does my unit support bit setting???..i’d like to burn in the future just dvd+r; i bought a dvd+r philips 8x , and updated the unit to 0050 to try this media but:
dvd info pro and nero recognize the writing strategy only at 1x (!!!) (also with 0043)
dvd identifier detect 2.4 , 4 and 8 velocity, but it’s the only one
dvd info pro, dvd bitsetter and k probe2 don’t allow to set the book type to dvd rom ( “unit doesn’t support bitsetting”
Do I have to change 8x philips media? (may be it’s newer than 0050b firmware?)
Do my unit support bitsetting? wich firmware?
Do I have to use a particulary bit setting utility? (and , reading the forum, everything should be ok also if nero doesnt’ have the box cheked about the dvd rom book, evertythings should be done by the bit setter utility before…
I think …
thanks a lot to the useful forum and the people inside
