Here are some burns that I’ve done on BS0G… all of the strat switches used to do these burns are already in the latest rev. 2-09 “Recommended Tweaks” file.

The ever-so-common RICOHJPNR01 (RiData-branded) at 8x using the R02 strat:

YUDEN000T01-00 (Samsung-branded) at 8x using the T02 strat:

CMCMAGR01 (HP-branded… note that it seems that HP-branded CMC discs are higher in quality, so YMMV if you’re using other brands of CMC) at 8x using the M01 strat:

RITEKG04 (RiData-branded… this is one of my last remaining -R discs from a very old batch I bought in January–the disc was rather scratched up because I dropped the pack of discs a few times) at 8x using the G05 strat (it seems, that the G05 strat works well on the 3S, unlike the 2S) (note, this -R burn was done using ZCLV and not PCAV… one more reason to use +R):

RITEKR03 (RiData-branded) at 8x using the YUDEN000T02 strat:

I will try it out on some media.

just flashed hoping this would solve my problem but it didn’t.

This is an 8X burn on my 1213s@1633 and scanned on my 832s. DVD Shrink and Nero 6.3.1.20 used here. My 1213s@1633 is in a USB2.0 enclosure as well.

I like the look of this burn!! :eek:

I will try to post some more from different media I have.

Here’s mine

Could you rescan that at a 4x scanning speed, please? Thanks…

It’s mostly because it’s hard to tell what “max” means when it comes to 1633S scans–whether its 8x or 12x, and while 8x doesn’t distort things that much, 12x does somewhat.

Infiniti 8x DVD+R RITEKR03/002.
This is the best result I have ever had from this media. It won’t burn at 8x in the 832S.

Burned at 8x using BS0G and the T02 strategy:

wow, this firmware looks to be awesome, everyone will be rushing out to buy the 1633s :smiley:

lite-on is getting there
i think e quality will be able to compete with NEC in the next firmware release


#13

Only 5 16x, and no 12x ??? - I thought they were sliding it down to 12x (and they seem to have denied 12x to media that it was previously allowed for), to hold the quality - mind you, a short PCAV ramp up to 8x (on DVD+R) would make it a hellishly fast 8x burner - not far short of 8x CLV

I guess Prodisc R03 @ Prodisc R04 might be worth a try for an overspeed.

Presumably if there are no 12x strategies already available, ticking 12x will not work well


#14

That does appear to be the case but in saying that the ones that used to be 12x may just need there speed changed to restore 12x and code65536 did find a 2.4x media that worked at 4x by just enabling the speed.


#15

i think liteon drives have a bad problem with fujifilm03 x8 media, have very strange results with them


#16

ok, this time right, thanks guys for the pointers



#17

@PumaUK

SPEED: 4x not Max


#18

oh right, thick head on, thanks icemac


#19

PumaUK

Try your scan @ 4X (instead of max) so it’s comparable…

Thanks

Here it is at 8x
