I was wondering if people could offer up their views on the different firmware’s available for the 411. (And the 811).
It would be nice to be able to have some type of table with ‘general’ results for the firmwares so making an educated decision isn’t based upon reading 100 people’s views on the firmware or someone mentioning that a certain firmware is better with DVD-R.
So, if people could post their views on firmware versions (even comparing the 411’s to the 811’s since upgrading IS possible), I’ll try to put them into a table or something. At the very least this thread could give a central place for 411/811 firmwares.
Note: Firmware results depend on your personal system setup as well. Below is only an overview to aid in selecting which to utilize. In addition ‘Better for XX burning’ means it burns THAT type of media better then other firmwares (as found by most people).
FSOF - best all around (+/-R); better for -R burning then other firmwares; best bet if going to burn DVD-R’s.
FSOG - worse then FSOF.
FSOJ - possibly one of the worst for DVD-R writing, but better for +R burning.
HSOE - best all around; better for -R burning.
HSOK - not so good; better for +R burning.
HSOP - best all around;has benefit of booksetting; better for -R burning
HSG8 - OEM Firmware; should be exactly the same as HSOP with a name change, but some people report better burns.
