    think cross flash, sooner or later
  4. not seeing the forest for the trees
  5. Life(?), you might use shrink to make another iso of a questionable burn on poor media(cmcmag)/something that should have been backed up to a verb, then the test will not waste another good blank
  6. he's probably gonna wait till he gets a better iso to test those verbatims on(cmc mags can be wasted)
  7. Like Chewy was asking i have some Imation that are rated for 8x what do you say about selecting 12x for them? where's that firmware upgrade? LUK can't fix everything! If ImgBurn still burns 4x after the firmware upgrade when you specify 8x, then it might be a bug!
  8. "lol Its working. Selected 12x burning at 8x. Whats MMC?" I invited him to ask about 8x media, and told him you didn't bite too hard! But told him to update his firmware!
  9. thanks I have suggested than, will have him try a firmware update, he's probably skeptical about the crossflash, but he's already smoked anony's X2amd64/3800 bench times. smoked is slang for beaten

  11. something's wrong in the global economy, is that .40 x 1.77= 71 cents? I get 200 value disks shipped to the door for less than half that, or is there a 100% VAT?
  12. buy the best forget the rest, burned in oct 18, 2004 on a pioneer dvr-105(@4x) FUJI(MIJ)
  13. now what would make this scan and disk unique? I knew sooner or later I would find one!]My Webpage[/url]
  14. Pretty sure that the well document wopc feature, most sportsmen leave it off when after big game(the 99QS at 5' 30" burn full disk) other burners have a lamer power calibration function
  15. See if a system adm can set rights for imgburn, doing a little extra work at work?
  16. That's often the problem with buying a rebadged drive, poor firmware support, the liteon 1635 is a very decent drive with much better support. http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=...ghlight=DW-Q30A http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?cate...4&manufactor=30 be patient sony will come thru sooner or later http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?download_id=2141
  17. After rereading this, I would like to add, my TYG03 seems to be slightly better media than my TYG02, but my TYG01 beat both of them at 8x, notice I used past tense, they are all gone! Of course this is just a few percentage points in the upper 90's. After scanning 50-60 old disks this week, a 96 doesn't seem much different from a 98. When you scan a year old ritek G05, it puts it all in perspective. When the disk hits zero less than halfway thru the scan.
  18. now that's a ghost I have been chasing for over 3 months And what conclusion did you arrive at? There's something to that theory(hypothesis), but every time I think I have caught the devil, media inconsistency lets him go and the chase begins all over. That's why I call him a ghost. I am gonna defintely scan all burns with all media when NEC releases new firmware for the 3550. Or I get that other ghost, my Benq 1650.
  19. Sounds like your expectations are a little low there what's 350/350 x 100 in percentage points ? when I scan a TY it's for those museum piece 99+ burns
  20. now that's a ghost I have been chasing for over 3 months
  21. Let's not let that happen, except as needed! All those scans and burns takes time too.
  22. and that was with my nec 3550 @ 8x now compare with LUK's 4550 burn at 16x on same media
  23. http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=507 I don't get this kind of burn at 16x on any mature firmware.
  24. And notice the speed it burned the 8x media at, a TYG03 might not be so pretty, it's not in my Benq at 16x.
  25. I have been using 3 computers to test my library of older burns, after replacing 50 disks and scanning 100, I wish I had documented it. My hat is off to you LUK!
