MBI PG101R03 Strat experiences with SOHW-832S VS0E

Since I can´t find 8x media very easly, and this 4x rated media sold as MMORE, is available at Staples in a large stock. This media is cheap too! Cost me 68 euro cents each piece. Than I decided to try some strat changes with OmniPatcher, to allow 8x burn with this media. I saw some good KProbe scans with a MBI PG101R04 strat, so I decided to give it a try.

Drive is Lite-ON SOHW-832S VS0E (The real one)

The JLMS XJ-HD166S firmware is patched to allow DVD+R(-R) 14x maximum read speed.

First the media information:

Now, the disc burned at 4x, with it´s own strat:

Now, the disc burned at 8x, with it´s own strat:


#2

1 -> The disc burned at 8x with MBI PG101R04 strat. First Burn.

2 -> The same. Second Burn.






#3

3 -> The same. Third burn.

4 -> The same. Fouth burn.






#4

5 -> The same. Fifth burn.

All five burns, except for the third, seem to have a reasonable scan, but the transfer speed is very unstable. Why?

Since the transfer graph has to much ups and downs I decided to stay with the original strat with it´s 4x maximum rated speed.

Hope this helps someone!
