Hypertuning & RW disks

vbimport

#1

Might be expect to see hypertuning for RW anytime soon? (I ask since I use quite a bit of RW, and these disks have been causing me some difficulty in an existing burner, so looking for a new one)
Does anyone know if Benq/Philips “solidburn” has this?


#2

No, Benq does not have this; and I doubt there will be such a thing because of the few strategies implemented the drive will have few options to choose from and if it picks a wrong strategy it could compromise irreversible the media. And while a R media coaster is not a problem a RW coaster is few times as expensive.


#3

So what’s liteon’s history like for issuing new firmware (for the media codes) over the medium long term say 3 years? (RW is quite important to me as I use it for offloadingTV recording)


#4

I suggest to buy a unit who is capable to write properly RW media you use. Read the reviews here, I’m positive you will find the proper unit.


#5

Honestly, just forget about that.
Anyone who tries to overspeed RW media will see drive and or media into pieces in the end… :rolleyes:
Besides, Benq burners are known to give weak results in case of RW media.
