As posted by avationwiz on cdrlabs: here

The Lite-ON site on its product page mentions the “LTR - 52327S COMING SOON !!”

No mention of a LTR-52326S there though.

:frowning: I want a 52326

S*it. It means we can’t upgrade our series 6 to that one :frowning:

But who the hell needs 32x rewrite? Not me.

Maybe we will.

:cool:

As long as 512mb usb storage is still expensive, I will continue to use 24x RWs to exchange data with my friends. I certainly wouldn’t mind having faster rewrite speeds like 32x :bigsmile:. Looks like Samsung is the first one out the door though with their 52/32/52 cdrw drive.

Does anyone know the difference between the MediaTek 6 and 7 chipsets??

What are the improvements?

Reading beyond the Leadout, reading the pregap before the first audio-track, …???


#7

Can’t Mediatek-6 do this already? At least reading the leadout is supported.

Maybe the merging bit generator is reworked :smiley:


#8

At least reading the leadout is supported.

What I meant, was reading after the LeadOut.
If I’m correct this is used on some Console games.


#9

i doubt there will be any changes in 7 series except higher re-write speeds.


#10

i was under the impression that the 7 series was going to be the combo dvd & cd writer.

the 7 series burners may be convertible to a DVD/CD-RW combo by a simple firmware flash. you never know. :wink:

Umm that would require two lasers to be built into each drive. I think that’s a little bit of overkill for a CD only burner.

I could be wrong tho.

I’m pretty sure that it would not require two lasers. Don’t get your hopes up for being able to convert your CD-RW drive to a combo drive though…


#14

man liteon is gonna use series 7 chipset just to piss us off and make us buy new drives. Kind of messed up since series 6 hasn’t been out all that long. Maybe well get lucky and be able to flash 6-7 but its highly improbable.

Perhaps liteon is starting to get greedy. Oh well i guess i’ll sell my 52x series 6 when series 7 comes out and buy that


#15

I seriously doubt that LiteOn would go to the expense of making a drive with a new chipset if they did’t have to, they’re too cheap. Most likely the new drive required a new chip to work, they are dependant on Mediatek to make these work. However there are rumors of a 52326S, so let’s not lose hope yet.

DVD and CD work on different wavelengths if I’m not mistaken. That takes two different lasers, unless they combine two into one.

I remember seeing a diagram a long time ago showing how DVD drives used two lasers (again… things have probably changed…). One to pick up CD data and the other for DVD.

I am not gonna claim to be right on this, just what I remembered.

i’m sure that even if it doesn’t require two separate lasers for cd and dvd, it would still require additional or different hardware to allow the laser to also read/write dvds. u’re right about cds and dvds working on separate wavelengths ari.


#18

but you never know about lite-ons.

if they can use an Ultraspeed RW media compatible chipset in a 48x12x48x burner (48126S) which can be overclocked upto 52x24x52x, they can use an all-in-one chipset DVD±RW/CD-RW & only implement some of the features like DVD-R, DVD+R or only CD-RW (e.g. 52x32x52x) & so on.

the possibilities are endless.

i may be exagarating but, you can’t tell.
:wink:

think about it: if u can buy a cd burner and flash it to become a dvd burner, why would u spend several times more money for a “real” dvd burner? lite-on (and the rebadgers) would lose A LOT of money if they allowed such a thing to happen. the impact of being able to overclock ur cd burner to a faster speed does not have nearly the same ramifications as the ability to change ur cd burner into a dvd burner.

on top of that, they’d have to include the dvd-capable hardware (i’m sure it’s not as simple as just a chipset) in the drive as well, which would mean additional costs for the parts.

perfectly right m8. we can atleast hope for it to happen. :bigsmile:
