Thanks for the reply Chas0039,
I appreciate your help. I was curious, based on the nero speed data transfer test, does my 167T appear to be a bit slow reading the dvd-r? Shouldn't it read it much faster than that? Or is it the limitations of the read speed that liteon sets?
Because it averages out to 6.55x during the test.
If I do go ahead with codeguy's 167T.9S19.patched-rs firmware upgrade package, I was a bit confused with the file folders in the package. There are 12X, 14X, and 16X folders. And in each folder, there is various firmwares. Does it mean that if I have a 16X SOHD 167T, I should use one of the firmwares contained within the 16X folder because those files are only meant to be used for a 16X model or can I use files from the other folders (12X or 14X)?
I was thinking of upgrading with this firmware below because I'm afraid that if I upgraded to the 16X read firmware upgrade, the 167T will read the dvdr to fast (ie 16X, there is greater chance of an error). Or does it not make a difference since if I do continue copying on the fly at 12X, even though the 167T can read the dvd-r at 16X, it won't, it will just read it at 12X max to maintain it's speed with the Pioneer 109 writer which will be set at 12X recording speed.
If I am right, after I upgrade the firmware with it, I should be able to "Read DVD-R at (12X max), Read DVD-RW at (8X max), and Read DVD9 dual layers at (12X max)". Am I right in assuming that this is the case?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm just want to make sure I don't leave out any important info before upgrading the firmware.
Thanks in advance
