KenW
can you make test with bios a102??


#5

Since updating the A103, the LG has some serious issues:
Lead-In: spins up and down several times, after the 5th or 6th try the burn process starts.
Lead-Out: the same.

Someone with the same problems?

With A102, everything was okay.

#7

No problems (so far) with A103, but I have only tested with about 4 different types of media.


#8

mhmmm, maybe a defective media, the 2nd one seems to be okay so far.
The first one gave me read errors at the end, its CMC-MAG (8x, +), btw.
I don´t have any other media here, and the first one was also the first from the batch.

#9

Printable?

Or low quality brand like datawrite?

I have 400 CMC Datawrite printable that is unusable :frowning:


#10

Platinum 8x, not printable.
Bad luck, normally (at least since I buy them) they are Ricoh, but not this time.
The 2nd one was okay, a KProbe-Scan with my 167T @8 showed me an acceptable scan.

#11

DVD-R Liteon 4x (CMC MAG.AF1)


#12

8x Philips +R (RICOHJPNR02) burned at 12x.

Burn time was 6.35 mins.



#13

VANT

I have in past when A102 came out look back in forum posts.


#14

MCC004@16x
Still good results with this media


#15

I confirmed that with A103 my GSC003 DVD-R 8x media, which was restricted to 4x, is now supported at 8x.


#16

andreapappy

looks great for 16x scan btw you seem to have 3 of same drives I do, I have found that the newer CS0G or CSTJ fw on liteon does great job , and I notice you also have not gone to U9 for BenQ I find T9 is best.


#17

Ultron 8x (RitekR03) burns at 8x

Firmware 102:

Firmware 103:


#18

Ok First Burn From GSA4163A103 Firmware

First Off Sorry That The DVD Is Only 4x TDK CMC MAG F01 DVD+R
And That The Image That I Burnt Was Only About 1.8Gig In Size.

But The Burn Is Good. :iagree:





#19

KenW.

I went from A101 to A103 today. HA HA, I had to catch up with you guys.

It looks like a lot more media may work better with our drive now.
