Toshiba sd-m1502 vs sd-m1612

#1

Hi,was wondering if anyone knows of any differences between the new sd-m1612 and the old sd-m1502 toshi dvd rom.

I was looking to get one and have noticed the sd-m1502 has more firmware updates and region free patchs as where the sd-m1612 has only one firmware update and no region free patch but theres no point buying the old model if the new one does more.

Anyway,any help would be great.

Thanks.

Later.

i own a sd-m1602. I am very pleased with it. It is a good drive.
The diiference is the speed and, my guess, the support of dvd-r and dvd-rw etc. That is why i bought it…

The 1612 also support DVD-RAM disks when you take them out of the cartridge.

Otherwise the 1612 is better in everything.

Neither drive reads Key2Audio / CDS200 / DVD+RW

Both read DVD-R / DVD-RW,
but:
Latest firmware for 1502 reads only 40x CD
The 1502 reads
dvd-r @ 2x CLV
dvd-rw @ 6.6x-15x CAV (!), but only verbatims at top speed without spindowns
The 1612 reads dvd-r and dvd-rw @ 2-5x CAV
The 1612 automatically spins down if only few data is read to avoid noise

(i’ve tested all this except DVD+RW on my own)

I’m going to buy a DVD rom drive this weekend, which one is better? I’m using the DVD rom to read data/audio to image files and then burning them with my LiteOn 32103s.

Thanks for help in advance!!

I Have copied with my TOSHI SD-M1502 and CloneCd 3.3.4.1 the OSB of SW EPISODE 2, which is protected with Key2Audio without problems…

i am a bit disappointed with key2audio…

i used:
EAC, FEURIO and CLONECD

with

YAmaha2100e
TOshiba 1612
Pioneer 103s (i believe)
Lite-on 32123s

all could copy it… (just copy the first session)

so go for the Toshiba 1612


#8

That’s funny,

my toshiba 1502 reports “no disc” if I insert a K2A-disc…


#9

i guess that is because there seem to be different versions of key2audio

HI,
the Toshiba Sd-m1612 is speicialy recomended from Olly to use it with CloneCD as a reader as it is a very fast drive able to read all copy protections around.
