The simple answer: You have no guts! And; No guts - No glory.

Noo.

Speed?

5 min.? What’s the deal? => Noo.

Right answer: A Matter of Quality!

If you want to preserve something for the future - like camrecordings of your life, childhood, kids, etc. -
quality does matter. And you have to preserve it on a proper media which today is a dvd.

Kprobe results:
All done with:
Kprobe1.1.28; 4/8ECC and max UNchecked,
Cheap Imation x4 +r => RICOHJPNR01 and
Booktyped to DVD-ROM, Nero 6.3 and
similar release date of firmware;
411:FS0H - @811:HS0K and burned at 4x.

Before modding and as a norm for my earliar burns (Kprope):
PI Max: 577, Average= 319.826
Po Max: 25, Average= 1.166
With an icehockeystick PO/PI at the the end of the scan

After modding done with MK4 (Kprobe):
(The 6th burning i.e. after 4 break in burns . Th 5th is similar)
PI Max: 152, Average= 52.909
Po Max: 95, Average= 0,045
With higher PI-values at the end and 1 PO-spike which I can’t see on the screen. But all all within AND well above the standards for a DVD.

Zebra AND Crew:
Thank you for doing the work Lite-On should have done regarding the quality aspect of the firmware!!

By the way: Is http://www.atomicmpc.com/ and speedlabs.org down for the moment??

Im Z beta tester and yes their web pages are down , the atomic site seems to have server error and speedlabs is getting face lift should be up this weekend or by monday anyway.

PS

no i cant hook you up with beta software patchs lol, but keep reading there is new mod in the works , newer then mk4.


#3

Blah. Why should I do that? I’m happy, happy Lalalala. LOL

Ps. Aren’t you guys testing the alpha-version of the mod? Or am I wrong in that respect?


#4

There has always been a ‘newer version’ coming out ever since it all started. I expect that this will continue for a few more months yet. The real fun will start when the 812’s and 8x -R writing firmware/EEPROM can be looked at… :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

and hopefully by that time, we’ll have all recovered from and be ready for the new sessions of sleepless nights waiting on releases/launch parties :bigsmile:


#6

I think my wife is really beginning to regret buying my this drive for Christmas, I’ve been spending way too much time on this stuff. I’m hooked!

:eek:

Just tell her it’s a cheaper addiction than golf and safer than crack or hookers. And that stack of discs in the corner are for testing purposes only, it’s not really your porn collection.

:cop:

That should be LiteOn’s new motto!

If I told my wife that I’d probably come home to an emptied out house! :stuck_out_tongue:

Maybe you should try to mod your wife ? :bigsmile:

Sorry, couldn’t resist :wink:


#10

Tried that once. Was unable to get a decent probe for weeks.

We test all version of the mod before it gets release to public, alpha, beta , rc1,2,3


#12

I know. And a version is finnished when it’s finnished. Right?
Beg for it? No. Wait? Yes

As seen in my first posting I’m very impressed with the results I achieved by using the mod.

I would also like to comment on the fact that Lite-On has not provided us with firmware so we could achieve quality burnings of DVD’s. This is - in my opinion - the legal basis for the consumers to take the matter in own hands and solve it by themselves; Zebra AND crew.

Man i just love hearin the success stories…

morradi… that’s exactly why the mod is residing in my liteon - the quality is soo much better than when it was just a liteon…

now that it’s a liteon-Z edition, i can actually burn well to sh*tty media, and get archival quality on good media :smiley:

Cheers
Amph.
