ok before i had the G7M9 firmware for my OEM benq 1620 burner
and i burned a 4412mb dvd-r sony 8x at 16x on nero and it finished at 5mins58secs (sorry no screen shot forgot about it) and it was completely quiet where i didn't hear it spinning at all or burning for that matter
here's the quality disc score though (i was able to screen shot that)
but now i cross-flashed it to the B7P9 firmware and i burned the same 4412mb dvd-r sony 8x at 16x and it finished at 6mins34secs (big drop in time) and here's the screen shot
like why did i lose speed, another thing is while it was burning it was really loud i can here it spinning unlike the first time where it was really quiet? what is the cause of that?
i did get a higher quality rating though
but can someone help me on my question why the drop in speeds after the cross-flash to a RETAIL firmware and why is it loud now? should i cross-flash the original firmware i had and am i able to? how would i be able to do that?
sorry for all the questions
