The Lite-On DH-20A3x (rebadged as the Sony DRU-190x and Optiarc AD-7190x) and Lite-On iHAx322/iHAx422 (DH-20A8x) series drives can scan for jitter on the second layer of a dual-layer disc.

The discontinued BenQ DW162x, DW1640, and DW165x series drives can do the same (these drives are rebadged as the Plextor PX-740x, the Sony DRx-810A/UL/T, and the Philips DVD86x1/DVD8701/DVD88x1, among other models).

The discontinued Plextor PX-708x, PX-712x, PX-716x, PX-755x, and PX-760x series drives can also do second-layer jitter, but only using the proprietary Plextools software.

Drive: DH-20A4P-04
Firmware: Stock 9P54
Media: Falcon 8X DVD+R DL printable
Burn: 8X

Had less-than-great DL burns w/ 9P59 firmware, flashed to 9P54 and lookin’ much better. Older firmware not great w/ my TYG03’s, but I have other burners that love them.



#814

It’s been a long time since I’ve tinkered around with scanning. The rip is from my NEC and is burned with IMG BURN. I think 16x could be 12x. Some 16x-r verbs burned with the Litey. Anyone like pie? I got to buy more media so I can get a rip from the litey. Also the rip is quite compressed.



#815

It was 16x, and it was it’s very first burn ( second scan). Can’t wait to try more.

u can use C0deKing’s Frimware from this page :
http://club.cdfreaks.com/f44/liteon-dh20a4p-h-fast-burn-enhanced-overspeed-enhanced-oht-firmware-231875/
LH-20A4P (9P59 FB FBL EOS EOHT 6 *DUAL)

just for the record the Drive comes in 2 revisions of firmware “A” and "S"
that’s what’s meant by Dual in the firmware name (which automatically detects ur drive rev.)

if u want to manually Flash ur drive
download the Flash Utility-3.0.2–open it – select ur drive and it will tell what rev u have of the drive

download the Non dual pack and select the rev u have form the files with the Flash Utility (it will accept firmwares in EXE form normally)



#820

i should have it tuesday.

is one revison better than the other?


#821

well i never saw any of the "S"
but CK says the “A” has better odds in the terms of quality

u may look back a few pages for this and the previously Provided link


#822

ok i have gotten the drive in and i have the A firmware as your pic above does…now heres where im lost. do i click on the read flash? it opens the folder with the FW’s in it. i have abunch to choose from. do i choose the one i want and then click write flash?


or am i missing something?


#823

hmm dont think i need a FW update? what ya think about this burn/scan. first burn on the drive.

Read flash backs up your current firmware to a file [reading the firmware from the drive].

Write flash writes the selected firmware to the drive.

When reading, you have to name the file yourself, and name it as a .BIN, because that’s how Flash Utility is going to write the firmware file. [It should append the .BIN filetype to the name automatically]. Don’t overwrite anything else.

When flashing using any of the enhanced firmwares [in self-flashing packages], you don’t have to use the Flash Utility to write to the flash. You don’t have to use it at all during this part of the process, unless you are trying to identify the firmware type [S or A].

If you download the enhanced firmware set that has “dual” at the end of its name, the self-flashing packages will choose the right firmware type [S or A] to flash, and you won’t have to worry about flashing “the wrong one”. :slight_smile:
