After testing the play back on a set top unit and scanning some other media with the factory firmware I'll go ahead and try the cross flash to the H10N. Just trying to get a before and after flash comparison.
what kind of RAM media? speed, brand, MID, country produced ? where did you buy it ?
bill wrote:Looking forward to seeing your scans when you get a chance to post them. Hopefully your scans will improve to your satisfaction after you flash to the LL11 ( TY 8X update ) firmware, assuming that you will flash at some point?
alas, the drive was flashed to LL11 before anything was burned.
i'll post the scans soon, you can see a few here:http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=182304
if you look at other scans in that topic, and also in this topic:http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=179029
(these are of the H10N but it's supposed to be the same drive minus LightScribe), i'm really disappointed. was hoping to get really good quality burns, but the YUDEN000T02 and MCC004 scans i made and posted there are nowhere as good as most scans posted by other people. all of these other posts by other people - some excellent results, mine are mediocre at best.
i'm having either bad luck with drives, with media or maybe there's some systemic problem i'm not aware of - power supply or warm (hot) computer (not well enough ventilated) - could that cause the bad results ?
bill wrote:What's the MID for your TY? I have a 1620 available, a 1655 and maybe a 1640 . Would you be interested in the scan results on the same disk with the different drives?
YUDEN000T02, TDK brand.
if you read that cdfreaks thread you'll see scans of this on both my BenQ DW1620 and the H10L. another guy there said the media is surprisingly bad...
what brand is your TY?
why don't you burn it on the BenQ DW1620 as well as you H10A, and scan on the 1620, we'll compare with my results.
