im totally new to this sorta stuff
I want to upgrade my drives firmware. I ran cd-dvd speed, and it says:
Sony DVD RW DW-Q120A PHYS1
so i’m assuming its a DW-Q120A model, with firmware PHYS1
I use it for mainly burning dvds. I don’t mind about warranties or anything.
I guess i’m interested in accuracy and speed =d I can get these really crappy dvds from a local store, MVD brand name (totally random i guess), but sometimes my writer doesn’t burn on it.
so anyway, should I upgrade firmware?
I’ve downloaded PHYS3 from sonyisstorage.com , and 160P6S.PS0C.patched-16xOS-rs.rar (the speed unlocked version) from these forums, as well as 160P6S.PS0B.stock.rar
i’m getting slightly confused though. not sure which one to use. any recommendations?
and, if possible, can someone link me to a post which shows what blanks are best for my drive? I’m assuming dvd+r’s would be better, since its a sony drive? or am i totally wrong. hm
thanks in advance
btw, what about write strategies? worth changing write strategy?
ok, dw about the dvd+r/dvd-r question. did some reading, seems my drive does better with dvd+r (cheers to jesterrace)
