Just to see if makes some difference in burning quality in good media.H42N crossflashed to H44N RB01 using MCSE.
1st test - MCC03RG20 ( Verbatim -MIT ) at 18x
Burn time: goodQuality: worse than RJ11 in the same batch of MCC03RG20 Perfectly readable. :bigsmile:
Get that frown off your face :rolleyes: 18.35X burn in 4:56 mins. That's a great burn not good for that speed
I haven't flashed mine yet but i will in a few days to give it a try
Burns with RJ11 are 1-2 seconds faster. :bigsmile:
I take your word for it. 1-2 sec. :rolleyes: :bigsmile:
2nd test Sony16D1 ( Sony 16x MIT ) burned at 18x.
Burn time: very goodQuality: good ( but I hate that mountain effect :a )Other perfectly readable media.
Lets see a really bad media.
RitekR04 ( Ridata 16x ) - I select 12x but the drive choose 6x :a Quality: Very good but still 6x :aBurn time: normal to 6x CLV
Does the h44n or l still have the same problems with cd-r's @ 24x and faster burning speeds?
CD-R CMC Magnetics burned at 48x.
A single glitch near the end. I repeated the TRT in the same drive and again the glitch near the end.
RICOHJPND01 burned at 8x
Quality: AverageBurn time: goodReadable but not perfect.
If you don't have another scanning drive, but only access to the LiteOn DVD burner, you might try scanning CDs at 4x CLV (if you have time) :bigsmile:
Benq 16x +R (SonyD21 I expected DaxonAZ3 ) burned at 18x
Note: An odd buffer underrun at the end of the burn.
Quality: AwesomeSpeed: good
So what's the general consensus? H42N firmware or H44N firmware FTW?
I need more media testing with RB01 firmware to compare with RJ11 and RL01.Any posts of tests with medias that I don't have are welcome. :bigsmile:
Don't think you've posted any Taiyo Yuden 16X-R yet, zhadoom.This is from Rima.com 100 pc. White Hub-printable TYG03Burned@18X on Nero; Burn Time-5:01
There's no source of "real" Taiyo Yuden in Brazil. The only good medias that I can buy are Verbatim ( MCC ), Sony ( SonyD21, 16D1 and rarely 8x YudenT02 ).
The best results I've had on the 42N are from Verbatim 16X-R MCC03RG20 for 18X burning. Looks like you've access to those anyhow.
Verbatim 16X+R MCC 004 @ 18X (5:07)50 pc Cake Box from Rima.com White Hub-printableI'm starting to like this RB01
MCC medias rules. :bigsmile:
Another Benq 16x +R ( SonyD21 ) burned at 18x.
This time no buffer underrun.
Quality:Very GoodBurn Time: Very good
Seems that this media limit is about 16x to obtain maximum burn quality.
I guess the Liteon is the only drive that will scan these LG discs correctly, I am having no luck with my BenQs or anyother drives scanning them.
