LiteOn Fast Burn Dual format and Ultra Fast Burn Patch
The Official Thread
Increases the burn speed to allow faster and better quality burns. There will be two versions, FB (Fast Burn) and UFB (Ultra Fast Burn).
Increases the 8x and 12x +R burn speeds by using the 16x burn curve for the CAV part of the burn. This one produces a 12x burn in around 6:30, which is only 30 seconds slower than a 16x burn and produces very good quality (Release Post).
Fast Burn Dual format
Increases the 8x and 12x +R and -R burn speeds by using the 16x burn curve for the CAV part of the burn. This one produces a 12x burn in around 6:30-6:50, which is only 30 seconds slower than a 16x burn and produces very good quality (Release Post).
Ultra Fast Burn
Increases the 8x and 12x +R burn speeds by using a new 18x burn speed (start speed 7.5x) for the CAV part of the burn. Interestingly this appears to be a similar CAV speed (start speed 7.3x) used by the LG drives, so I don’t think it’s as dangerous as I first thought, but I must warn those that use it, that it is at the limit of the rotational speed of a DVD, so don’t use cheap discs (Release Post).
Read this before you start burning
If your using the 1693S FB firmware, make sure you start off with a couple of 8x burns to allow the drive to learn the new burn method, before trying the 12x burn. If 12x quality is still poor, try a reset learn and then repeat the above procedure.
Thanks to the beta testers.
