I’ve been searching for days for a liteon forum and didn’t find this site until today. I’m hoping you guys can really help me with my problem.
I just downloaded codeguy’s 167T.9S19.patched-rs firmware upgrade package but after reading the readme file, I’m not too sure if this will help me.
The reason I was thinking of upgrading my firmware for my 167T is because for some strange reason, when I am doing a backup of a dvd-r, my write speed will only burn at 8X on the fly even though my Pioneer 109 burner and the media is verified to burn at 12X. It even says in Nero that it is burning at 12X but when it’s finished copying, it takes 10 minutes and that’s the same speed as an 8X burn. So that’s what lead me to think that during the burn process, the 167T was limiting the read speed of the source dvd-r.
So to summarize:
Source Drive: SOHD-167T
Writer: Pioneer 109
Media: Ritek 8X (but will write at 12X)
- the dvd in the liteon SOHD-167T is a DVD-R copy (so no copy protections)
- on the fly copying
- software is Nero 6.6
Problem: it will only burn at 8X, is this problem caused because of the current liteon 167T firmware. If so, will codeguy’s firmware package help me?
Sorry to be so detailed in my explanation. I just thought that if I provided as much details, that might help troubleshoot my problem.
If anyone could help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
