New DVDinfopro 3.30 with high speed BenQ scanning

Postby KenW on Tue Oct 12, 2004 8:16 pm

This week BenQ asked NicW to add high speed scanning to DVDInfoPro for their new firmwares. They stated DVDIndfoPro was the premier tool of its kind and wanted it showing off the scanning capability of their products. A new update will be posted this coming weekend all being well. Some drives may need new fw to use faster scanning.

Support for 1600 series burners is unclear at this time, more info as its discovered


Anyone interested in beta testing this new version on BenQ 800 or 822, and maybe 830 please email nicw@bigpond.net.au , thank you for your help.

I believe with the way BenQs scan, that BenQ PIFs equate to 16 what is 4 for Lite-on.

To bad about the B7L9 not having fast scanning, but then it also does not seem to have DL 4x burn that Emperor was talking about either. We can hope that a newer fw will release soon maybe called B7M9.

Thanks for the info, KenW- I'm a bit curious about this. 1 remark and 2 questions:
  • first let me congratulate you on posting the first PNG I've seen with DVDIndfoPro results. :D
  • just what is "high speed scanning" on a BenQ? How does it normally scan?
  • I'm curious about the reported speed on your screen shot. The disc seem to be full, the speed says 8x CAV but seems to run from about 3.5x to 5.5x. Is this a "running average" over the disc so that we'd have to take the derivative to get the instantaneous speed? It sure doesn't jibe with my notion of 8x CAV (e.g. as reported by CD-Speed).

1> BenQ drives 8xx and 16xx before the new program changes used to scan at 1x the new fw and the new program updates let the drives scan at 4x 6x or 8x. you can see how this would be nice as 1x scan takes a little over an hour to complete where at 4x is 15 minutes and 8x is under 10 minutes.

2> The speed error on posted shot has been fixed in the beta dvdinfo 3.30 public release.

ps

after doing some checking around it would seem BenQ sent the program writes at beta L fw for 1620 with high speed scanning, but the L released today on benQ does not have this update as part of it, this actually common with beta fw to have options that are turned off in the release fw of the same name, so we can hope that M or N fw for 1620 will have high speed turned on, so for now only 800/822 will do new scanning.

Yes! We know, its odd as it didnt hang on test pc's. No matter a new beta dvdinfo is due any time now. Im sure you will be pleased with the fix nicW has done.

Till then NicW says

wait a while it usually will go on in time.

if you just wait and watch the drive will start up again when it refinds track

As promised NicW has again made more changes to the 1620 scanning at high speed this scan is on DVDinfopro 3.31 beta as you see the speed has been corrected and also the data displays, note this media was burned on a liteon 1633 and scanned on benQ 1620 with the high speed scan enabled fw.
