Thank you C0deking! I’ve succeeded to crossflash 1673S with patched KS0A (of course using omnipatcher). It seems that 1673S@KS0A works fine.

First of many scans…Fuji burned at 8x, stock firmware, NVidia drivers.



This is one of those “Not so good batches” of TDK TTG02’s.

TTG02 (TDK) Firmware KS0A Burned at 8x

Maxell burned at 8x.



thank you. will be updating my 1693 tonight

Installed KS0A on my 1693S and did a test burn with RITEK R03 media, I got so disgusted with the scan of the burn I stopped it 1/2 way through and tossed the disc in the bin.

My Pioneer 108/109 burns this media flawlessly, I know you all are going to say Ritek media is not so good, I say the 1693S is far worse burner, than my choice of media. :a

@code

Code your site is dead :sad:

Ritek are not really that bad, used there media quite alot, but yes the liteon/Sony does struggle sometimes with the media, Batch of Ritek G04 i had performed much better on the pioneer 108 than it did on the sony

I have tried an MCC04 with this last FW. And I get better result at 16X than with my BenQ.

I stopped using Ritek because I couldn’t get dessent result with both my BenQ and my Liteon. With the G05 it was ok (though not the best) but with R03 it is terrible. Mines were Traxdata!!!

This is because RPC1 Forums is moving server, it should be back up and running in a few days :clap:

See the new announcement at the top of the forum :wink:

I just can’t believe Liteon as lost so much interest. A few month ago such thread would have been a very hot one with plainty of pics…
That’s really bad because the 1693S is not that bad…I “accidently” baught one and I have to say it is a very good burner.

IMHO this firmware has some nice improvements as seen in this scan. :bigsmile:

YUDEN000-T02 (FujiFilm) Firmware KS0A Burned at 8x

Hehe. All they seem to keep tweaking is TY.

Looks like it DeadMan, lol :smiley:

Lite-On you guys crack me up! :iagree:

Scans from KS0A are looking pretty good!

How do you accidently buy a DVD burner? lol
Ordered the wrong model?

Some one asked me to buy one for him (near by my work place) and he never refunded me , so I kept it!!!

MCC04 (infiniti) burnt at 16X
Not the best burnt but at least it stays consistent even when 16X is reached.


Is there a way to change CD-DVD Speed to use 8 ecc?
