Thanks jan70. :bow:

Now we have to check if ala42 is at home… WE NEED P2.2 .CVT. :bigsmile:


#3

I doubt that you want to use 0.57x scan speed speed, no PIF scan, +R/-R read speed reduced from 16x (P1.2) to 12x (P2.2).


#4

No problem… here


#5

Thanks Quikee. :bow:

Now we just have to wait for the “new” WOPC Tool for BenQ 1640, Philips 1628/1648. :wink:

thanks!!


#7

No problem here ala42… I still have my beloved 1620 that runs at full speed and repports whatever I need to know. :smiley:


#8

Looks like Philips has done their homework better than BenQ. I rarely get a 99QS @12x on this problematic Fuji branded YUDEN000-T02 media.
No problem when on Philips P2.2 firmware though. :clap:

Note, first (learning) burn. OS and SB on,
WOPC on (can’t be disabled in QSuite for Philips…?)
.

Thanks jan :clap: :smiley:

*Does Solid burn enable know media by default ?


#10

SolidBurn and Overspeed burning can be controlled via Nero v6.6.0.17 (f) on the Philips DVDR1648P1 (firmware P2.2).



#11

BenQ 1640 too?


#12

ala42 is right.

NO PIF scan.


#14

TERRIBLE

I have a philips 1628p drive. How do I upgrade that? It doesn’t work with original firmware upgrade. Thanks

Hi ziget, and welcome to our forum.

The Q2.2 SolidBurn firmware for your Philips 1628P1 drive, can be downloaded at: http://download.cdfreaks.com/download/116


#17

Jan70 > Is there a Philips s/w for Solid Burn or just in the new Nero or BenQ’s QSuite?


#18

As expected the Philips 1628P1 Q2.2 firmware differs only in the drive id and a timestamp from Philips 1648P1 P2.2.


#19

At the time being, Philips have no plans to release their own program for controlling the SolidBurn and Overspeed feature on their SolidBurn drives, since the features/controls are integrated in Nero Burning Room 6.6.0.17 and Nero CD-DVD Speed v.4.06 / v.4.07.


#20

What about cleaning the EEPROM for learned media’s for now or is it in Nero 6.6.0.17?
