GCC-4480B MODEL SERIES ARE CURRENTLY DEFECTIVE!

Postby webbertrix on Tue Jul 08, 2003 10:19 pm

Since the introduction of the GCC-4480B firmware 1.02.

- CD-Rs and CD-RWs reading speed was reduced to 40x.
- Reading back RAW DAO/SAO CDR is STILL BROKEN!!

I have spoken with LG representative, they still don't beleive
there's any problems with the CDR reading at the present time.

(They said i'm probably the only person complaining about theses issues.)

In their mind, It was more sounding alike a "feature" request rather than a "bug fix" request...

Unless tons of customers send them complains, i beleive they wont fix the firmware.


===================


Owner of this combo drive, could you try this little test
and tell me the results :

(So we could demonstrate this bug is a reality for everyone !!)

a) Gather any DATA CD, (use none protected ones)

b) Use the Alcohol software over your GCC-4480B :

Alcohol 120% v1.4.3 Build 158 or later.
(You could go download freely a trial version overhere :
http://www.alcohol-software.com/download.php)

c) Read an image first with datatype = Normal CD.
(You could use Image Making Wizard in Alcohol)

d) Write image over a blank cdr with datatype = General Protected CD

(You could use Image Burning Wizard in Alcohol)
=> You should notice the Write Method = RAW DAO

e) Read back that newly created cdr using the same GCC-4480B device. (It probably wont work !!)

f) Try to read back that newly created cdr over any OTHER cdrom device.

g) You could also try Write Method = RAW SAO + SUB and redo
steps d), e) f). You will probably get same results.

Please post your results here.

You could contact LG support at :
