I tried to make a dump with the B0, but the flasher always causes a crash on my PC
Here’s an old archive of GH24NSB0 firmwares. (These were previously posted/linked here, but I’ll repost them here).
It has LM01 and LN01 which appears to be from GH24NSB0 drives.
GH24NSB0_LM01.bin (1 MB)
GH24NSB0_LN01.bin (1 MB)
It also has three firmwares A1B2 and A101 from a “Dell” rebadge and RK05 from an “HP” rebadge.
GHB0N_A1B2 (DELL).bin (1 MB)
GHB0N_A101 (DELL).bin (1 MB)
GHB0N_RK05 (HP).bin (1 MB)
These dumps all have the strings ‘MTEKMT1882’ and ‘JR20’.
My B0 have LM01, bought with LM00
No different writing quality from B0 - D1, I think the D5/D6 are same.
GH24NSD5 (bulk) has appeared in local shops recently. Do you still think that this has the same writing quality as previous models?
Only burned an Umedisc DL with my D6, this media have often very different results, so I´m not sure.
But with B0, C0 and D1 I don´t see differences
Will post some scans of NSD6-burns in some days
I don’t really need one more DVD writer, but if this is noticeable better than previous models I am willing to give it a try. I very much doubt it though.
I think the writing quality is the same, this still means it should be a better writer than LiteOn. My D6 is not so noisy than some of the D1 I use at work, but it could be a coincidence because it varies a lot with the D1-models. And the PC-case also have influence, some cases start to vibrating if the drives use high rpm
The noise from ASUS DRW-24D5MT at 16x is unbearable.
Are there any “svc code” on these recently manufactured bulk D5 or D6 models?
I´ve posted picures with all stickers in the 1st post, nothing to see if I looked right
So the most of the D1, but the “blowing” are not the biggest prob for me; it´s more the prob that some PC-cases start to vibrating if the D1 use high rpm. But the 5,25"-slots can´t be uncoupled
And finding a quality case that does not vibrate and has more than one 5,25" slots is not easy.
I have old cases with 8 or 9 5,25" slots, different manufacturers. But use a newer LG, or the even more worse drives from Samsung (224BB, some of 224DB/GB) are a challenge for all my cases.
Pioneer-drives usually don´t have this vibrating-prob, but the “blowing” is good distinguishable
Whenever I drop by the nearby local offline computer stores, I’ll usually look at the dvdr/blurayr drives they have in stock.
In the case of LG manufactured drives, I mainly look for changes in the “svc code” and firmware which are almost always printed on a sticker on the top of the drive.
I think I had better results with Verbatim using ASUS DRW-24D5MT, but probably because of better (older) media and not the drive.
Jep, I think it´s more the media. I have many mediocre results with Verbatims of the last 4 years. Because of the lack of writing speeds I used 16x, and I should mention that the LGs very rarely or never have speeddowns while writing, my other drives from Samsung and LiteOn relative often shift the write speed down if using 16x
