Verb +R burnt 16x

all on



#788

hello

i have a problem with this drive: using verbatim 8x mcc003 dvd-r i obtain a average pie errors 50 and pif error 0.05, and also terrible results on DL verbatim DVDs that sometimes they are unreadable and they go directly to the trash :frowning:

i’m running 9P59 stock firmware.

i have downloaded the smart burn utility to enable EHOT: is now enabled or i have to flash with the firmwares from Codeking?

thanks


#789

No, it should be enabled, if you flash the drive again it will go back to factory setting.

which firmware works best for Verbatim 16x +r’s with the 20a4p drive? i always use TY’s, but I’m almost out. My last online order was a disaster. I ordered ten 100 packs of TY and 7 out of the 10 packs were coated in dust. I mean each individual dvd-r was coated in dust. I didn’t discover it until months after buying them. Supermediastore really screwed me over. I’m going to buy verbatim’s at office max this week. on sale $25 for 100 pack.

Burnt at 8x.

How is the burn quality?

There is definitely room for improvement.

adityamunshi can you please save a copy of your existing firmware with the Flash Utility and post a link in the firmware announcement thread? Thanks!

[QUOTE=superhero;2152728]There is definitely room for improvement.[/QUOTE]MBI media can – and often does – scan like that. But it’s still OK to pretty good with playback and longevity. Still, it would be nice to have a nicer scan. :iagree:

Not sure what, if anything, this might add above 9P59 for the branded units. Its internal build date isn’t much later.
For sure it doesn’t have the CDR jitter improvements we’re all waiting to see in an official build. Also unknown whether this is optimized for a sharp or Mitsubishi LD.

Thanks adityamunshi!

The internal date for [B]9P59[/B] is: [B]2008/01/14[/B]
The internal date for [B]9M74[/B] is: [B]2008/03/11[/B]

Therefore 9M74 is 2 months newer, so there must be some changes one would hope …

This seems to be an [B]“A” firmware[/B] (Mitsubishi) => http://club.cdfreaks.com/f44/moserbaer-liteon-dh-20a4p-firmware-update-255958/

Can’t say anything about media support since MSCE does not support it yet.
I haven’t tested it because my 20A4P is an “S” drive, and as such I don’t think the test results will be relevant!

I liked my first one so much, I got 2. It actually manages to write some media I like to use without coastering it.

RiDATA Branded
Ritek F16
Stock 9P59 w/ SB, FHT, OS, and OHT enabled using the settings utility.
Burnt @ 16x, 5:50 total burn time.

Roughly all burns come out this way, which is tolerable for me considering the $17.99/100pack I paid for them.
