Now that 16x media is affordable I finally bought some ritekF1s 16x , to my horror even the latest 1.20 firmware won’t let me select a 16x and is locked at 4x. Ok i tried the RPC1 1.18 hacked firmware and it allowed me to select the 16x but wouldnt burn above 2.6x !!! and even reading back the cd averaged at 2.6x !! Below is picture of what the read looks like.
So a media we know works well at 16x even in later pioneer models is not working in earlier pioneer models which are rated 16x…is this fraud on pioneer’s part ?? What is the course of action…i want my 16x pioneer burner to burn my 16x dvd at 16x speed !!! (or even 12x )
