I’m fairly n00b I guess when it comes to technical in’s & out’s…
I’ve been very happy with my LH-201AP Lite-On drive but have now needed to increase burning capacity so went to buy another identical one.
The 1st drive burns absolutely fine at 16x and even 20x on some of my blank media.
Installed the 2nd drive and using Nero for multiple burn I can get around 5.9x with both burners running.
I see the “Buffer Level” bars for each drive go up and down a bit during burning, mainly on the newest drive and on the original drive it says “read position” 17% (well… usually 17% but it does vary a little each burn).
Is everything ok??? Any advice on how to get better speeds?? Even 8x would be good!!
I’m using Ritek blank 16x media…
Drive 1: Lite-On LH-20A1P KL0A (flashed today from KL05)
Drive 2: Lite-On LH-20A1P KL0G (wouldnt allow flash to KL0A)
SysInfo: Pentium 4HT 3GHz, 1.5GB DDR2 RAM, 160GB SATA HDD
OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate
The Lite-On site now only lists the KL0A as latest firmware which was added to site on 28th June 2007 or something?!?!?!
