LG 8481B read speeds

vbimport

#1

hello all, first time here.
i have a 8481b cdrw flashed to 1.05 . When i use VCD’s or certain CD’s , NEro info shows the CD read speed as 15x …

As it is the drive speed is 48x, but due to some limitation, LG drives do not meet up to this mark… ie only 40x is accessible.
however, with a VCD, the read speed drops to 15x… %$^4

No im not sure abt BIOS 1.02 , but i think the problem was there also…
I have a liteon 166S DVD rom (48x), when i copied two movies to the hdd,
i finished copying 3cd’s in the liteon before the lg finished the first one…
whats the solution? Also , will flashing to 852x B bios help only the write speeds or read speeds also? …
Im interested in flashing up if it removes this read speed problem…

well thanks a lot u exeperts!!

anyway… i flashed my drive to a 8520B with mtkflash and now its 52x drive… :wink: But the problem still exists…

VCDs are read at maximum of 15x …

doesnt and joker with a LG CDRW have this problem?

also the max read speed is still 40x.

so now its 52x24x40x…
