I have a 411s@811s running HS0Q fw. After scanning these forums for a while (and posting a couple of times), I have a few questions:
- my burner is in 2nd position on 2nd IDE (behind dvd-rom). both set to cable select. Is this going to cause me problems? What is the benefit of master-slave (with burner in 1st position)?
- I see lots of references to forceaspi and killaspi. I am running Windows XP Home. Is there any reason to use the aspi layer vs. spti (I think that’s the alternative)?
- I also read I should uninstall Intel App. Accelerator, but saw no reason give as to why. Can someone enlighten me?
- Is it worth going back to HS0K or HS0P as I have read in some posts? I get worried everytime I flash the FW for some reason…
I am trying my best to get good burns with my burner, but as seems to be typical with _11s drives, I get great results in the beginning of the burn and the last 1/8th seems to spike higher with PI/PIF errors (no matter what disc type, +r, -r, +rw, may different brands - CMC, MCC, RICOH, no name). The +R (bitset to -ROM) are at least playable in a set top dvd player. The rest are coasters…
Thanks in advance
