[QUOTE=dynamis;2530482]any bluray scans, vroom?[/QUOTE]

You will have some in the next week, if all goes to plan.

I burned/wasted a couple of BD-R DL Verbatims with this burner and my Samsung BD-C6500 has trouble accepting them. It takes 5-10 tries to load the discs - player keeps ejecting them… Same brand Verbatims burned with an older LiteOn DH-4B1S were loading into BD-C6600 without a glitch but had some freezes during playback due to poor burn quality. Burn quality with iHBS112 is OK as you can see from the scans below

UPDATE: upgraded firmware on my Samsung BD-C6500 and now, discs loading good. Not wasted after all

nice burns! plus it scans difference between 10x and 12x is around a minute? still testing out the lg 10x burner. is the bdr-205 still considered to be the best burner?

Here is the BD media table. The firmware table has no revision code info.

I did not expect that there are no other BD-R supporting 8x or 10x burning speed. Looks like they concentrated their efforts on three of the media that can reach 12x to call the drive a 12x BD burner. Compared to a LG BH12 it has a bad BD media support. Well, this drive is Liteon’s first try for a BD writer and LG released their first GBW-H10N in 2006, so LG already knows what Liteon still has to learn. It takes time to tune the media support.

UPDATE 2: I just discovered that all Verbatim BD-R DL discs I burned with this burner NOT readable in Pioneer BDR-205 (Firmware 1.08) WTF?! See the “Disc Info” pics of the same disc in both drives below

I am lucky I wasted only 3 BD-R DL discs with LiteOn and decided to try a Pioneer BDR-205. The burn quality is better too. I am attaching the scans of the same media - Verbatim Data Life BD-R DL x2 - burned with Pioneer BDR-205 and scanned with LiteOn at x8 and x4 speeds

I think I’ll be using Pioneer for burning and keep LiteOn for scanning. The scans bellow were burned with LiteOn iHBS112. The burn quality is inconsistent - compare with the scans I posted a few weeks ago. Same media but even a burn strategy looks different…

TY value live +R 8x @ 8x

The drive is on was on an external USB case, and all disk have perfect TRT up to16x.
