Hello, first time poster and semi-newbie here. I just got my new sh-s203b yesterday and did a few burns on some TYG02 at 8x after upgrading to the rc03 firmware. Unfortunately I don’t have another drive to test scans with and I’ve never messed with windows registry before so the best I could do at the moment is scan with the sh-s203b and Kprobe2 at 4x. Can someone help me cheat a little and tell me if this seems right? I expected better. Then again I guess I don’t know what to expect since this isn’t the program people seem to scan with often and the drive isn’t one used to scan much either. Should I be worried?

i wouldnt worry that seems ok to me. :slight_smile: but would like to see the whole picture. :slight_smile:

which version of cd-speed are you wanting to use?

oh and do the scans at 4x or 8x. good luck

Ok thanks for that. Nero cddvdspeed 4.7.7.15 is what I have(nero 7 ultra edition). I’ll get it going at some point, I just haven’t done anything registry related before and I’m afraid I’ll ruin something. Probably just paranoid. Just for fun I ran a Kprobe2 test on one of the last discs I burned with my BenQ DW1640 and it wasn’t even close to being as good as the new ones I did with the samsung. Also TYG02 burned at 8x.

Errors : 0
PI Max : 102
PI Average : 35.19
PI Total : 590382
PIF Max : 4
PIF Average : 0.28
PIF Total : 4768

Then again it was on the brink of death so it’s a wonder the disc even works.

EDIT: Just did a scan of an older burn I made with my DW1640 when it was still healthy, also with TYG02 burned at 8x

Errors : 0
PI Max : 46
PI Average : 10.91

Much better but still can’t touch the Samsung. I guess I made a solid purchase with this sh-s203b!

Hi,

since you have a Benq, you can easily compare the scans of both drives (with the same disc of course).
My own 203B scans very similar to my Benq DW 1650 btw.

I upgraded to sb04 firmware and burned with nero at 12x to see what would happen. Got me a 95 quality score this time. Not sure what did it this time but I’ll take it!

Where are my manners? Thanks for the assistance!


#7

Got another 95 score burned at 8x with dvddecrypter. Woohoo! I guess it’s the firmware.


#8

Have you looked into ImgBurn, Dvd Decrypter’s updated burn engine?

Sorry for the unnecessary post but I need to say that this thing is really good at ripping bad discs. I have a few cd’s that I could never get onto my hard drive with my Benq dw1640 without errors. Now I have rock solid rips of both! The only thing that concerns me a bit is the slow rip speed of dual layers. The review showed 12x dl rip speed I believe but I haven’t seen it go over 8.1x or so. Whatever, still does the job very well.
