Samsung S20xx & Sony DRU-840A Fast Burn and Fast Read Patched Firmware
Fast Burn (-FB):
Fast Burn uses P-CAV for 12x burning with both +R and -R media. Now 12x burning takes around 6 minutes, a saving of around 1:20 over the stock 12x CAV burn.
Fast Read (-FR):
Fast Read converts the 16x read speed to an 18x read speed. Reading has proved to be very reliable at this speed in the latest MTK drives. To date I haven’t found a disc that will read at 16x, that won’t read at 18x. Tools that report the read speed will still show the drive as a 16x reader and the next lower read speed is 12x.
A Fast Read only version is also provided in the packed file.
Note: Results can still be posted in the normal scans threads but please state that the FastBurn firmware was used.
Thanks to all the testers and an extra thanks to NewFish for the attached scans.
