Mine is Mitsubushi brand…not Verbatim…although I know they uses the same dye :slight_smile:

Which center do you mean…the one on the plastic or on the silver part?

If its on the plastic…it reads PAPA28KK10163480 :eek:


#2402

Same parent company, different branding.

PAPA is CMC manufactured media. Manufactured 10/Nov/2006 at 4:34 PM :slight_smile:

The BenQ DW1620 and the New Packaged Verbs @12X. This is a new DW1620 Pro I found at a Curcuit City on sale for 29.00. I didn’t even flash it to the lastest firmware yet.

Hi guys,

Been trying to improve writing quality on some miniDVD images, my damned GameCube (Xeno chip) is so picky with media and burn quality… (FYI MCC003 or MCC 03RG20 won’t work despite really good burns). Anything above 40 or 50 avg PIE will cause trouble. Original disks have ultra-low PIE (below 3 average). Anyway, below 10 avg PIE works perfectly so far, but tooling with WOPC disabling…

4x burn WOPC enabled

4x burn WOPC disabled

Despite possible differences between disks, what burn do you think it’s the best? With WOPC PIEs are lower but much more PIF spikes…
Both disks are going to work well but, I can’t figure out which one would make happier the GC’s drive, being so sensitive to PIE :confused:

Cheers

Oh, btw, I’ve not seen scans of CMC MAG. AF1 media, so here we go. These are Datasafe 4x miniDVD-R. First scan WOPC enabled, second disabled.

NOTE: TTG01 write strategy employed, noticeably better than the AF1 default one. I’ve read somewhere around the web TDK outsourced batches of TTG01 media to CMC Magnetics (supposedly relabeled AF1 media), that may explain this.

Cheers

Hey pinto, Don’t care what any one says. These drives Kick A$$:bow: and we have the proof with quality and longevity. Don’t see any other drives out there than can say this and if there are, it’s not many. Let them live on forever. And by the way, Happy Holiday’s to you there pinto and everyone else out here. :iagree: :bigsmile:

Just patch flashed one of my three newly acquired external 1621s from 47N9 to 47P9. The first pic is the scan I did as soon as I got it setup, this drive wasn’t easy.

#2412

heyyo beef…TYG02’s should be marked 8x.


#2413

Not if you change the speeds with MCSE. To tell the truth I am not sure MCSE supports the DW1620 for speed hacks.:confused:

It was a long time ago, but I could swear when I got these they were 4X, but I will mark them 8X, sorry. That was brand new 47F9, right out of the box. Just flashed from 47F9 after using MCSE on RPC1 47L9.
