[QUOTE=briankc;2626740]Greetings all, I appreciate the excellent work on MCSE and expert advice on this thread.
I recently purchased a WH12LS39, which others including ala42 earlier in the thread have quoted as probably MCSE compatible. I took an Opti Drive Control transfer test before and after applying a MCSE firmware patch (read speed boost + RPC2 reset), using a commercial BD DL movie disc (Toy Story 3 :)) as well as a commercial DVD.
The DVD test speeds were identical before and after. Interestingly though, the dual-layer Blu-Ray disc I used for the test now shows a marked increase in speed for the first layer, but the second layer has stayed at a much slower speed that’s identical to the pre-flash test. Images attached.
Is this common behavior, or did MCSE maybe patch only a part of what was needed since this drive model isn’t explicitly listed as supported? Or is it maybe just a function of the commercial discs I’m using to test with? I’ve been trying to do my research by reading as much as I can, but I’m still quite new to this.
Appreciate any advice.

The low read speed on DVD’s is normal. Try to test another BD DL. That graph is normal for a DL BD if the disc quality is not the greatest and the drive must slow down to read the second layer. You will probably see a normal read graph with a different BD DL.
