My LH-20A1P when using KLON f/w will only write 16x (just). While the f/w is supposed to support 18x.
Now with KLOM f/w (support for 20x added) the result remains the same.
DVDIdentifier yields this result.
All of which has been verified with CloneDVD2, MagicDVDCopier & DVD neXt Copy.
You have to enable Over Speed Writing on the drive in order to enable speeds over 16x. This can be done with e.g. the Smart-Burn utility.
Typo in thread title BTW: LU-20A1P…
KL0M/N both support upto 18X with OverSpeeding enabled with the SmartBurn utility, but this overspeeding function, as far as I know, only adds one level up in speed so I can’t see how 20X would be enabled with it. Anyway, I checked with CD-DVDSpeed and the maximum is 18X for these discs.
Always wanted my own drive.
‘SmartBurn’ Whenever I enable that the disc quality suffers.
But thanks for the info. I assimed as TY 16x rated media does reach 20x & says it does without ‘SmartBurn’. Verbatim would be likewise.
If you have to resort to ‘trickery’ then the f/w is misquoted surely.
You are right, TY 16x rated media is supported at 20x even when Over Speed Writing is disabled. In my experience there is a good reason for this difference, because YUDEN000 T03 and TYG03 are less likely to produce bad results when burned at 18/20x compared to MCC004.
Must a Lite-On thing then.
I’ve not had this experience with my other drives.
Both TY & Verbatim being almost inseperable.
My Samsung SH-S203B springs to here.
Although Verbatim is 18x max whereas TY is 20x.
So maybe you’re correct.
Hmmm… I have no problem in getting MCC004 to burn @20x in my 20A1P using fw/KL05
but I haven’t tried any of the other fw yet because I’m happy with the results that I get
with KL05 and MCC004 here is a link to my typical results with MCC004 burned @20x
Sorry getit29, but I’m referring to stock f/w.
You’re using patched f/w.
It is my contention that if a f/w states it supports 18x or 20x. Then that should be in native form. Not with additional applications (or patching).
The report from Skylon was [B]UN[/B] official so basically it’s hear say…
I understand what you are getting at Zebad
Oh okay I feel kind of dumb that I misunderstood the post sorry about that
That’s OK we are all here to learn.
One of the best ways is said to be by mistakes.
It does claim to be 20x DVDRW though.
