Upgraded my firmware to 1.07. Mind you the difference may be negligable over a short period of time, but I found a few interesting things with 1.07.
Testing FujiFilm DVD+R Taiyo Yuden at 16X with Plextools 2.23. The burn gets to about 4GB...and the speed kicks down to 12X
Testing Verbatim 16X DVD+R Mitsubishi Chemical with Plextools 2.23 ....burn gets to around 4.2 GB and kicks down to 12x.
Flashed back to firmware 1.06
Testing the same FujiFilm at 16X, Plextools 2.23...burn got as high as 15.79X around 4.5 GB before kicking down to 12X...gigarec
Testing the same Verbatim 16X DVD+R , Plextools 2.23...got as high as 16.1X and never kicked down to 12X.
Did burns with the same disks in Nero DVD Speed...and tested the quality...TY was Very Good, Inner....Good Middle layer and Good Outer Layer...1.07
Verbatim was Excellent inner layer...Very Good middle layer and good outer layer.
Same exact readings on firmware 1.06
This in combination with jitter problems that many are having at www.cdfreaks.com
with the 1.07 firmware and CD-R...I am sticking to 1.06 until a better firmware than 1.07 comes out. In addition...1.07 is supposed to impact CD writing quality...for most at CD Freaks...they felt that it degraded
BTW...my original TLA: 0203
