congrats…i’m still waiting for a H20L firmware to be released so that tdb can patch it…

my drive was launched roughly 4 months ago and still no fw.

Since i patched my H10A with tdb’s rpc1 H10N firmware I’ve lost all ability to change the booktype of any of the +R formats! It’s all shaded out now.

burn a +R and see if it’s booktyping by default

with TDB’s patched JJ11 firmware, the booktype setting is done automatically. you can’t do it by software, you can’t control it. in the software it’s grayed out, but in actual fact it does work. check your burned DVD+Rs with CDSpeed or something and you’ll see that it is indeed DVD-ROM.

read the LG FAQ.

Ah ok, so it’s only the patched JJ11 firmware that the booktype setting is done automatically, the original JJ11 is manual?

I don’t have any +R’s to try but i tried a +RW and that stayed as booktype RW

no.
as far as i know, this is also in the original unpatched JJ11.
note however that JJ11 is the Hitchi firmware for their OEM drives (Buffalo, IO Data), not LG’s original firmware.
with LG’s firmware (JL11) there’s no autmatic bitsetting.

no LG drive does bitsetting on DVD+RW. only on DVD+R and DVD+R DL.

TDB,
How about RPC1 for the H10L, please.

Pretty sure it’s already there. http://tdb.rpc1.org/#GSAH10L

I just update my H10A@H10N from JJ11 to JL11 and verify that the booktype control has been returned to NERO 7.

Any other diferences between JJ11 and JL11 ?

With JJ11 my drive is UDMA4. In which mode works yours with JL11?

damn that was quick! thaks Bros. :slight_smile: :bow:

Burst rates.

Thanks TDB, found it on your site…good job!!! Appreciate it!

UDMA-2 ( 33 MB/s ) with a burst of 26-27 MB/s.

It should be UDMA2. UDMA4 ability with the IDE interface is another thing that came with Buffalo’s Hitachi firmware. The last is improved ripping and reading speeds for certain types of DVD discs. TDB’s patch only really added RPC1/auto reset ability. The rest was all down to the Hitachi firmware. This is not to put down TDB’s work - they did not have to waste so much time on this particular firmware release because Hitachi’s firmware already had so many features inherent.

Brother Vlad,

Any chance you can patch these LG firmwares so they do bitsetting on +RW ?

I don’t know why LG only provide it on +R

Thanks King :bow:

Yes, this would be nice, if at all possible… :bigsmile:

GSA H10A JL04 writes DVD-DL in 8X?
