For the first time, my Liteon 166S is starting to have problems reading SD 4.6 backups consistently. The images are fine (whether made in 1693S or 166S), besides all the blacklisting problems, but when burnt, even at the slowest speed (8x), the 166S, which could formerly read every Safedisc protection, now fails about 50% of the time (or slightly more). -the normal ~dxxxx.tmp crash.
It was able to defeat safedisc 4.50 (Dragonshard), but it required a 8X read and burn. Burning faster than 8x caused the tmp crash.
But with SD 4.60 (Need for speed: Most wanted), even an 8x burn isn’t perfect…the disk passes sometimes, but other times it just crashes (maybe 60% of the time). I have a feeling that SD 4.8 or SD 5 won’t work at all anymore ;(
A shame, really, as I was able to burn SD 3.15 versions at 32x without any issues and my 166S could read them fine. (the last SD 3.15 backup I made was of the Doom 3 CD).
Anyone else starting to see difficulty with the newest safedisc, even with SD 2.90+ capable burners and good readers? I thought the 166S was invincible…
