Some 4167B Scans With Firmware DL12

Yo-

As usual - when I get a new burner - I do a bunch of scans - so would like to share with you - as this is my first LG burner-

Start off with Taiyo Yuden 8x +R T02

Yo-

Next is the Taiyo Yuden 8x -R TYG02



Yo-

Now for some Ricoh 4x +R - R01



Yo-

Then some Maxell 8x -R MXL RG03



Yo-

Here’s some Verbatim 16x -R MCC-03RG20



Yo-

Now here is Verbatim 8x +R MCC-003



Yo-

Then comes the Verbatem 8x -R MCC-02RG20



Yo-

Then - talk about a media that a burner really DOES NOT like-

Look at the Taiyo Yuden 4x -R TYG01-

WOW!!!


bigmike,
what do these burns look like scanned on the benq?
especially the mcc 003?

Yo rbrtpl-

I only use my 1693s for Quality Scans and Kprobe Scans - as it is proven that these are the most reliable-

I have a 1640 - as noted in my signature - but have found - like a whole lotta other folks - that it is not a reliable scanner - so I don’t use/rely on the 1640 scans-

Mike

that’s interesting, I have found the exact opposite with my benq 1620 and altho
I am primarily a NEC man, Benq seemed to edge out liteon in my research before
I bought it. I have gotten to the point of superimposing PIF scans from my
3550 and 1620 and getting almost exact matches. What I do first in this mess
is try to get consistent 99 burns with a media on whatever burner to establish a baseline to compare scanners, burners and media. All in all my LG 4163 is my best burner, and when firmware matures my nec 3550 might catch it.

Yo-

Just goes to show ya that there are different strokes for different folks-

btw - I found my 3540 to be the worst/most unreliable scanner of the lot-

TDK 8x DVD+R (CMC MAG E01)
Burned at 8x with DL12

Ricoh 8x DVD-R (CMC MAG AE1)
Burned at 8x with DL12

Fujifilm 8x DVD+R (YUDEN000-T02)
Burned at 8x with DL12

It is not completely the truth.
The original DL10 firmware handles TYG01 really well and maybe other 4x media. The attached media scan with DL10 is exceptional quality but other scans look similarly with usually small number of PI/PIF.
The drive lost some capability to burn particular 4x media with both DL11 and DL12 firmware. :sad:



Yo-

Has anyone tried the TYG01 with the new D13 firmware-

If so - please post a scan-
