any help in adding this to the firmware would be appreciate.

Hi,

what does DVDIdentifier report with your LG?
Since the 22x LG drives are newer that that NEC you tested with, I guess, the engineers at LG have had good reasons to restrict the write speed of that media at 4x.

i have several different drives and all see the media as being able to burn at 16x, i do realise the quality of the discs is not the best but if the firmware says 16x then why does the drive only respond by saying 4x, imgburn also says 4x, the same discs in the nec,pioneer dvr115,pioneer dv1215 and my liteon lh-20a1h all say 16x.


#4

when i say the firmware support for the disc is 16x that is what the bin file shows when opened in mse.


#5

Seems as if some of my assumptions above were wrong :frowning:

[QUOTE=sparky123;2554066]when i say the firmware support for the disc is 16x that is what the bin file shows when opened in mse.[/QUOTE]No. There is no RITEK F16 support at all with GSA-H22N fw 1.02.
Your drive is using a generic “emergency” strategy with this media.
