Greetings, Gurus! A few questions, if you don’t mind.
How much does “learning” come in to play? Will burn quality improve over time?
Below are two burns and scans, each time I reset the learned media with the EPROM tool so they are essentially the first burns for that firmware. Is there a recommended number of burns I should try before comparing results of one firmware over another?
I am trying to decide which firmware is best for my 812. As I am sitting on a rather large amount of RICOHJPN01 and doubt that I will be switching any time soon.
There are several posts questioning single PIF spikes and although I have them in the scans below, I do not remember seeing them in older versions of firmware. Am I mistaken, or should I re-try some of the older firmwares.
Burns below are done at 8X. US0Q & CG3E Omnipatched with Auto-Bitsetting only. It appears to me that the CG3E did not do as well. Is this a fluke, is my sampling to little, or is CG3E not the best firmware for my drive?
Thanks for your advice.
