HSG8 OEM firmware - any1 tested yet

#1

Howdy!

I updated my burner to HSG8 firmware from 4kus.com.tw

This is the first firmware which offers bitsetting AND has decent DVD- results - at least on my Princo 4x. I made some K-Probe scans and the results were almost the same as HS0E - which is supposed to be the best firmware for DVD-.

Can any1 confirm this?

When you need HSG8 as a binary, I’ll send it to you.

This is strange.

Are you telling that HSG8 works with our (411@)811 burners?

I think that many don’t know that this is the latest firmware. Maybe you should post a new thread with the subject: new firmware HSG8 for (411@)811.

I see you have some good experience with it. To be honest: I experience good results with the HSOP with my two 411@811. I don’t want to change this “winning team”. Until now I burned 250 DVD’s and the last 150, burned with HSOP, without to much problems!

But I would love to hear the experience from the rest of the burning crew.

greetings

Hi!

Yes, HSG8 works perfectly on my LDW-811s and it should also work on any 411s @ 811s (v4 mod). It is the latest firmware (dated 13.01.04) which also supports bitsetting.

In addition, writing strategie for CD-RW seems to have changed. I had a lot of dropouts on my MP3 CD-player. Then I updated to HSG8, erased the CD-RWs completely and - to my surprise - the dropouts disappeared.

You know what?

I’ll give it a try.

I trust on your experience!

Could you mail me the bin?

Thanks a lot!


#5

Sure, no problem. I have just sent it to you. I hope your experiences are as good as mine!


#6

thanks.

I’ll let you know my experience!

What about posting a new thread?

I really think that many missed it!


#7

That makes three threads for this same topic… maybe the third time will be the charm? :rolleyes:


#8

(deleted link as I’m not sure if it’s acceptable to post)

Has anyone seen if there was anything added or is that just a different number for one of the normal released Liteon FWs (ie HS0K, HS0P, etc.)?

Yes I have a good feeling!

And you know what is the best?

When you want you can be in it!!!

Wouldn’t that make a great story for the children of your children?

Find the Windows flasher here. If it isn’t already done, use FlashFix (link found in tools sticky) to load it.


#12

SSeth, yeah, I know about FlashFix. Just too lazy to redownload it and apply to the 4kus firmware :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

I would also be interested in testing this new firmware with my 411S@811S (now I’m using HS0K firmware with good results).
May anybody send it to me?
Thanks in advance.

Quoting an entry, that I made in another thread ( http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?threadid=88039 ) :

Hi
I read this thread with big interest, since I have problems with my 811s burning with high error rates. First I reverted my drive from HS0P to HS0K - no changes, still bad performance.
Then I reverted it back one more firmware to be able to upgrade with an original, “unflashfixed” HS0K: slightly better values, but not to an extent to exclude any influence by the media itself (DVD +R 4x Verbatim datalife plus - MCC)
Upgrade to HS0P - still no good values.
Then the "cross"grade to HSG8 - unbelievable, but true: values are much better! Especially at the end of the disc, where the other firmwares used to raise to PI-values like 300/400 starting at the last 20% of the disc, now for 3 test-discs the values do not exceed 50 (one with a small peak to below 100), and that only for the last maybe 5% of the disc.

Can anyone explain this? I can’t, since you guys stated believably, that the firmwares are the same except some entries like model-number…


#17

OMFG!

It’s true!

Admittedly only 3 burns, but comparing to HS0K and HS0P, it’s amazing!

Still too high for perfect though.

But results are FREAKING AMAZING!

***** Update *****

After scanning a bunch of DVD+/-R burnt with other firmwares, it (HSG8) does appear to burn better, AND scan previously burnt DVD+/-R better. Spikes present in previous burnt media are still present, but tend to be more severe for high values, and less severe for lower values. (weird eh?)


#18

please send the firmware to me too

#19

From my experience, this firmware does seem to improve reading, writing, everything. It’s still not great, but it is better.

Drrivespeed,

You can download it from http://dhc014.rpc1.org/indexOEM.htm

You will need to use the Lite-On Utility FlashFix on the firmware to allow the firmware to be used on your LDW-811S.
