Recommended 411 and 811 firmware for ProdiscS03 DVD-R?

What firmwares have proved to work well in the LDW-411S and LDW-811S with ProdiscS03 DVD-R media?

Additionally, would it make a difference which IDE and ASPI drivers are used? These drives are on Asus A7N8X-X mobos with the nVidia 2 chipset and the current optimized nVidia IDE drivers. ForceASPI is being used but it’s always possible to move to Adaptec 4.71.2 if necessary.

As an aside, this stuff sure reminds me of the old RLL and MFM days…

I don’t know about the best firmware for ProdiscS03 on these drives. HS0K for the 811S is popular for a lot of media types. Maybe someone else can help here.

NForce IDE drivers can cause some issues but the lastest version are a lot better. Stick with the 4.60 ASPI drivers. Later versions can cause problems.
