One question about Toshiba SD-M1812 readers!

How fast is too fast?

One question about Toshiba SD-M1812 readers!

Postby cold_fusion on Sat Dec 20, 2003 2:06 pm

Tell me friends, isn't there a reason(...) why the firmware for this reader is locked?

1. The reading speed for CSS protected movies is 2x. Why do you think they didn't make it higher?

My opinion: "because the movie is already scrambled. So Toshiba figured that if the movie is scrambled it should not be read at speeds that may impair movie-play reliability." Same reason why you should read Protected game cd's at a certain speed and no higher than that otherwise you will always get a coaster.

That's just one of the reasons. Think about why should a CD/DVD reader spin faster than 52/12x! Why do you think CD reader/writer stop at 52x

a. To literaly des-integrate the disc.
b. To get the worst possible copie.
c. So you can tell your friends how fast it really gets.

Unless you are a professional pirate why not just wait 15-20 minutes to rip a movie?

No, it's simply to impair your ability to backup DVD Movies. It's an annoyance.

What do you mean by "Does it support C2 Errors?" I assume you are asking if it can report C2 errors, and measure them in a program like KProbe, which, no, it can not.

thanks for your replys :lol:

I have bought it from a local store, in my town for around 30 $.

I want to use it to report C2 Errors in Nero CD Speed.

:wink:

cold_fusion, don't you mean Toshiba SD-M1802 ?

Toshiba SD-M1802

i'm 99.99999% sure it reports C2 errors and can be used for CDSpeed.
(have the 1712 and it works just fine with CDSpeed).
