Bleh, A112 didn't do a damn thing for G05. Oh well...

Funny, I'm betting LG said the same thing about G05 everytime Ritek sent more samples :wink:

Good, so even the most stupid LG users can still profit from LG's policy of prefering quality over speed.

I believe I was "dissing" Ritek :wink: (and you'll notice this is something I am fairly well known for! :D )

:-D. Wonderful....

Can we get a more elaborate changelog apart from:

Code: Select all

Recognition efficiency of the media it improved.
Record reading efficiency to the DVD+R media it improved.

Heh heh. Well, seeing what you were throwing my way in that last 120B thread, I thought it was a safe assumption. Bleh...

They must be using lg drives in one of their computer lines, probably cheaper than using their own branded drives. For example, just look at IBM desktops, it was common to find Maxtor HDs in them, even though IBM (at the time) was making the fastest IDE drives.

What is the verdict on this firmware?

TYG02 (no faked crap)

PIsum8max before: 80
PIsum8max now: 17

Glad they used their time to work on real media instead of Ritek :)

Does this firmware still support bitsetting?

EDIT: Yes it does have bitsetting.

Finally made it: I've wasted 8 euro on 10 crappy ritekg05 discs. Write quality results will come within some few hours
