Greetings wise ones
I’m hardware tester form www.cdrifno.pl, site 'bout same things as cdfreaks, but in polish Currently i’m working on hardware reviw of Yamaha CRW-F1E and UX, and i have found something very strange in those drives.
When i got 1st Yamaha F1 (begining of July) it came to me with firmware version 1.0b. I was unable to test this drive due to other reviews, but i was using it from time to time, to burn some 2@2 or other stuff. And I remember that i have tested drives writing speed in CDSpeed, on few cd-r brands it reached declared x44. Few days ago, when the time to write review has come, i ran those test again (but meanwhile the drive was upgreaded to 1.0c firmware), and results really confused me… Drive is unable to write at x44 on any media brand - i have something about 300 test cd-rs (brands and sizes are of course diferences), and not even a one CD-R can be written at full speed… The same problem is with external drive - UX and when i connect the drive with supplied Yamaha SCSI converter - drives cannot wite at the speed >40x
- I need 1.0b version firmware in bin format, to downgrade the drive…
- Any1 met with something like described above?
I’m very short on time, 'coz the review was supposed to be show few weeks ago Please, hel,p if you can…
