Problems with GH20NS10



Hi to all,

I have bought the GH20NS10 drive about a week ago but i have some strange issue with it.

It arrived with EL00 frimware so I have downloaded and flashed the EL01 using MediaCodeSpeedEdit to increase the read speed.

The problem is that regardless of the type of media when i try to read a dvd with Alcohol it start reading at ~7x but after 10-20 sec. it drop down to 4x and stay there until the end.

It’s strange cause with Nero DiscSpeed the read is much higher.

Anyone know why this could be?

Attached a screenshot of a scan


Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Using DiscSpeed, can you run a Burst Rate Test on your LG (with a burned DVD in the drive).

Also, can you tell us a little about your PC specs - motherboard, CPU etc.

Thanks :slight_smile:


Ok, made some more test…

Burst rate is 15 MB/s.

Max writing speed is 4x, if i use a higher one it start normally but after some seconds it drop down to 4x. :a

I think it has something to do with sata configuration and driver.

The Mobo is set in AHCI mode, i know many users have issue with raid, is it the same with AHCI?

Forgotten to tel my pc spec.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
2x1GB DDR2 Geil 800MHz
2x500GB WD RE2 (WD5001ABYS)
