As you can see above, I’ve had good results with BSOC…I’ve also tried BSOK and it’s pretty good also. What type of media are your going to burn?


#6

hey hostile monk:
quick question, your drive is showing up as a sohw-1633, did you do a firmware mod to bend it to a 1633 or is it a 1633 out of the box ?? thanks for any info.


#7

It’s actually a 1613S out the box. I ran the firmware through Omni-Patcher and ticked “enable cross-flashing.” Are you familar with this program?


#8

To answer your question more specifically, yes, it was a firmware mod. :slight_smile:


#9

Hostile Monk thanks i will cross flash it to morrow i just burnt a disc to make sure it worked in the 1st place and the burn is being k-probed as i type

Same here.


#12

did “c” work beter then “k” did you go back to “c” firmware?
thanks
Bruce


#13

I think BSOC worked a little better for me, but they’re both good. I guess it depends on what type of media you are burning. I really didn’t expect such good results with DVD-R…but here’s one at 8x.



#14

yes i am familiar with the flash. i currently have a liteon 411@811s running. plus a nec 2100@2510a… i had a nec 3500 but returned it (2x’s), to many bad scans. looking 4 a new 16x burner.


#15

cmisenko this is not the “Best drive” but it appears to work well it takes about 2 mins. to make it a 1633,as well as burning well i want to belive it runs k-probe better the same disc is very much different with my 811 or sony,they all k-probe beter in the 1633,I had intended to get a nec 3500 but this was very handy,so the nec will have to wait.

I recently flashed my 1613S to a 1633S (BS41) and I’ve had nothing but GREAT luck! :smiley:


#17

Meh. For the price, I would rather have the NEC 3500A.
