[QUOTE=Albert;2767766]mattg, did the drive otherwise function normally? Did you ever get the chance to see if it could read or write a single layer DVD+R/-R at max speed? Or, if you have access to a BD-R burned on another device, see how that performs internally versus externally?[/QUOTE]
Is it possible for the bluray section of a drive to run completely independently and differently than the dvd section on the same drive, with very different behaviors? (ie. As if the bluray and dvd sections were designed by completely different groups of designers/engineers).
The example I’m thinking of is my my LG rebadged Asus BC-12B1ST drive. The bluray section doesn’t appear to be riplocked at all, but the dvd section is riplocked (on dvd discs with css encryption)
