Today nothing else that I have time to do.

Thank you for the info.

Is this related to the NS50 versions of the WH14NS40?


#3

Technically drives are identical, it also looks bootcode firmware is identical NS50 …
Probably the same bootcode is LG BH16NS50?




#4

The drive has a different structure \ mechanics \ mainboard \ chipset \ laser from the previous
model. Plastics \ the front panel are gosh quality and less aesthetic than those for which we recently LG accustomed.

Looks good! Wish I had something that could scan BluRay. I can’t find any scanning BR drives at NewEgg or my local Fry’s. Where does everyone find them?

Google shows a bunch of European stores for it, but nothing in north america. Well, two hits, but they don’t have any in stock. I wonder if it has a different name over here–they do that just to make people like you and me go nuts. :slight_smile:

Thank you for the suggestion. I’ll keep looking.

On a different note, my JVC-AMS6L(001) that were burning slowly on this drive burn at 8x PCAV with ImageBurn. I had been burning with Nero CD-DVD Speed 4.7.7.16 (SE3) on Win7/64 bit. It couldn’t get over 2-3X. It could do full speed (12x) TR tests, but writing was slow. If it were SPTI not working, I would expect both cases to not work. So, I just don’t know.

I’ll just use ImageBurn now. I hadn’t been aware that it saves the speed to a file which can be graphed. I was just useing CD-DVD speed because it easily produced a graph.

If anyone has suggestions, I’d like to hear them, but I have a working solution, so don’t worry. :slight_smile:

They’re almost impossible to find at B&M stores. eBay is one of your few options. For example, here.

Ugg, I have strong reservations about buying big items on eBay. Where big means >$20 or so USD. Thanks for the link. I’ll see if I can get over my reservations. :slight_smile:

Okay, having looked at it, I am not at all worried about that seller. They did all the right things–showed the bulk box, label photo, etc. Hmm $48 with shipping. That’s not really bad at all. Why am I reaching for my wallet…
