New firmware for Memorex F16 (rebadged SOHW-1633S): BWSE

vbimport

#1

To round off this new firmware frenzy, someone sent us BWSE for the Memorex F16 drive, which is a rebadged SOHW-1633S. This firmware’s internal timestamp appears to be a bit newer than BS0G’s. This firmware has bitsetting support.

Note: In order to tweak BWSE correctly, you need to use OmniPatcher 1.3.11 or later.

Bhairav, the sender would’ve claimed credit if they wanted it.

My bad :frowning:

Well I have to say this last fw seems even better then 1633 BS0G from few days ago. I’m going to leave it on for a while.

nero speed3.30 create data disk

dvd+r 8x yuden000T02

PS:

This fw like the BS0C and G fw will use UDMA-4 ata-66 with 80 pin cable, I do not believe it could do UDMA-4 with earlier BWS07, or BWSB fw, as I recall it only showed UDMA-2 ata-33. IF I’m wrong please someone correct me.

Yah, Ian@CDRLabs has been saying that the Memorex firmwares seem to be working better then the LiteOn. Seems a bit unusual, but enough people are saying it. Hehe. :slight_smile:

Yea, I can confirm Ken’s observation that BWSE is indeed showing UDMA-4 with a burst rate in excess of 40 MB/s. With BSWB, I have UDMA-2 with a burst rate in the vicinity of 25-27 MB/s.

Hi Code65536!
I think my older intel chipset limits my EIDE burst rate on EIDE bus, at UDMA-2 I got 22-24mbytes/sec and on UDMA-4 32-33mbytes/sec

Here is dvd-R 8x scan done same was one above sorry to say its not as pretty but I have never got really great -R off lite-on. btw only omnipatcher hacks I did were read speed and bitsetting I didnt use the strat swaps.
