First test with YUDEN T02 @12x ( TDK DVD+R 8x )
The 12x part gets ugly but… :wink:

It reach 16x at the 3.5Gb mark. :rolleyes:
Could it reach 17x or 18x speed if it would be CAV al the way up? :confused:

5:36 for 4.38Gb is one of the fastests times I have seen so far. :iagree:

My record is still 5:28min with CMC 16x DVD+R :eek:

My other friend raygay managed 5:25min with TDK 16x DVD-R. (- is alway faster)

5:18min is possible with Maxell 16x DVD-R. Hopefully we can see 18x drives next spring. :o

New Fw A101 YUDEN000-T02-00 12x test
4.2gb data disk burn

scanning with PX 716 fw 1.03

just downloaded …thanks!!!

Thx! Here is a scan of Verbatim 16X with A101 Firmware. 6:06 burn time ( 4464Mb )

Found a scan of an MCC004 disc burned at 16x on a 4163B on a Japanese message board site. It has to be the best 16x PIE scan I’ve ever seen.

Hm. Only PIE scanned in PX-716A? My result with MCC004 at 16x showed less than 100 total PIF errors when scanning in SOHW-1613S BS41 firmware at 2x read speed and about 125 at 4x read speed. It’s probably just a matter of time to see 4.7GB completed in less than 5:20 and still shows less than 5,000 PIE’s and 10 PIF’s. :slight_smile:

Anyway, now A101 firmware is out finally. :slight_smile:

(All my GSA-5163D tests were done with A101 firmware.)

It seems there’s no PIF at all except during the 12x zone. TDK YUDEN000T02 must be of the best quality for YUDEN000T02. :slight_smile:

5:36 is rather slow for GSA-4163/5163. :bigsmile:
