Just bought a new LiteOn 165P6S to replace my Benq1640, but I’m wondering if I’ve made a mistake. Hoping for a few pointers from you experts. I flashed it to MSOP BTW.
Fristly, the drive is so increadibly slow at reading DVD-ROM and verifying DVD-R, I feel like pulling my hair out, is there any way to speed it up by flashing a hacked firmware or I heard there was some technology built into the drive that feeds data to programs as fast as they request it, would turning that off help?
Secondly, can the read quality be improved? Just put a ROM in the drive and after a short while trying to read it, it decided there was no disc. Put the same ROM in the Benq and it read and decrypted it without problem.
in this thread:
The first post links to 2 firmwares. I have applied the official MSOP one.
What does the term flashfixed mean?
Does the codeguys version differ from the official firmware?
BTW: no problems with DMA etc. I’m sure the drive is installed correctly.
Oh, and what’s the issue I hear with lead ins? Thought it took a long time on that.
Oh and why is it that no matter how much research I do I never find out about all the problems with hardware until after I have bought it?
Hoping you can help
