[QUOTE=Hercules1;2205808] Anyways, I’m reading that the jitter becomes a problem when burning speeds exceed 16x. It has been stated above that the problem appears to be a result of having the HT/OHT feature active while burning above 16x. [/QUOTE]
The media ist rated for 16x and everything above is always no guarantee no matter of with or without OHT. And it really don’t interest me, all above 16x is only marketing to sell new drives, some burners do it better (LG, NEC) than others but it should never be expected you can burn 20x, 22x without risk. On the other way 4x isn’t always the best idea either, manufactorers don’t expect often people burning 16x media so slow, and neglected to implement good proven low speed burnstrategies for 16x media. And without that slower can be worsen quality. You should go dependend on media quality f0r 8x-16x with modern media and actual burners.
[QUOTE=Hercules1;2205808]Does HT/OHT being active(“on”) cause problems at slower burning speeds, say 4x or 8x(4x is where I normally burn a dvd)? [/QUOTE]
In my opinion no, I always use OHT with my new iHas322 no problems at all so far, dont’t use HT either you have big problems with your media, this overrides firmware strategie an creates his own, what is most times not better. And the “problem” is not new with iHas, for example with my LH20A1H and codekings eOHT Firmware I my drive is not able to burn faster than 16x, with standard firmware (and standard OHT) it is.
Is the HT/OHT problem a result of the firmware, hardware, or both?
It’s still the first firmware so you should give LiteOn a chance to develop the drive, for the first release it works already good.
