Here's something interesting
So today I was playing around with other functions of Kprobe...ie. the write speed test. So I tried it with my 451@851 GS0C and a RICOHJPNR01 (4x +R). At the beginning it started out @ 4x...after a short while the speed raised to 6x.....and then 8x...after it has gone about half way or so I terminated the test. And surprisingly, when I took out the dvd I found out that the stupid program actually wrote onto the dvd! My first dvd wasted
Anyway, so then I did a Kprobe scan and here's the result...you bet I am also scratching my head now...wondering why the burner doesn't burn well at 4x (Out of my 8 burns (minus this one) so far none has been satisfactory according to Kprobe, but the drive can read them with no problems whatsoever)...and it seems to burn better at higher speeds than the ricoh dvd+R is supposed to be burned at.
ps. Out of my 8 burns, 4 of them are YUDEN000T01 (TY 4x DVD+R) and 4 of them are RICOHJPNR01.
