  1. http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares.html#SOHW-1653S you are going to need the csot patched read the top of the page to understand crossflashing too old a drive and firmware, too new a blank
  2. I don't think Blutach would endorse using them if made in Singapore is still available Of course with enough time they may get the bugs out of Indian production, some batches have been excellent? Single layer used to be made in Singapore, dual layer replaced that, BluRay might if it ever takes off, now it's made in Japan
  3. I would hate to buy a bulk order online and get a bad batch from India
  4. Sometime the roll back does the same thing, XP or Vista install the default MS drivers then you load the nvidia ones over the top of them
  5. In the USA newegg? UK svp get an external or better yet build your own with a proper enclosure with good chipset http://club.cdfreaks.com/f58/5-25-nec-chip...alsonic-236983/
  6. where in the hell are the motherboard manuals? http://www.evga.com/support/manuals/ and the bios's what a crappy support system!
  7. Donta, you are particular about your enclosures for usb and with testing have eliminated substandard or even average chipsets the new nec ones seem quite up to the task according to dee and a few others over at cdfreaks I overgeneralize when I say usb sucks
  8. Sabian damn upstart younger son
  9. that's one reason Imgburn is superior to nero the disk might be more compatible but it also might refuse to rerecord or format Kingpin copy the right hand window part showing drive and firmware please
  10. If your verbatim's were made in india, they are made by the same company as your ACME media. My computer is over 2 years old and hardly state of the art when built. My LG burner is about 3 years old and still going strong.
  11. Regarding usb, unlike ata/pata burning, it's more closely related to burning in pio mode, sure the interface is theoretically capable of 480Mb/s, but it can't even handle video capture from cam corders without dropping frames. Why? The overhead is handled by the cpu not the chipsets. Hence the problem with dropped frames or I guess semaphore timeouts in burning. Using a source usb drive and burning to another usb drive is just plain asking for trouble unless your computer is fully optimized and has enough horsepower to manage the task. All these points I am making are common knowledge. Usb sucks I did run into one guy who swore his old dual cpu power mac could burn 2 dvd's at the same time at 16x with firewire and toast but the source files were on a raid stripe not another external drive. E-sata would be my choice if I had a laptop with inadequate hard drive space, looking forward to seeing e-sata dvd burners if they can ever get the bugs out of that
  12. I have burned about 200 yuden T02's, 100% success maybe 500-600 tyg01, 2 an 3's maybe one coaster verbatim's maybe 600-700 of the 16x almost all dvd+r's maybe 5 coasters I don't use old drives or outdated firmware or usb burners even with 2nd class media I usually get 96-99% success 3rd class I try to avoid
  13. Is the drive dying, worn out, dirty? Looks like some real issues. http://codeguys.rpc1.org/firmwares.html#SOHW-1693S http://codeguys.rpc1.org/oc.html
  14. were you playing a game while burning?
  15. different ide burners work, different sata burners don't work with dvd-r I would think the chipset(nvidia) and drivers might be the problem http://www.evga.com/support/drivers/ bleeding edge hardware?
  16. yes I have worked long and hard learning how to break stuff donta
  17. episode 1 was a tease the recap was very well done tho
  18. why are you trying to burn a 2 gig file to a dual layer disk?
  19. Hurley says 4 + 8 + 15 + 16 + 23 + 42
  20. afaik it's a good way to make a coaster if you multitask right at the beginning of a burn nero grabs a 200 megs of ram just in case you need it and then releases excess later at an 8x dvd burn you are only writting at 11 MB/s there are a few nero geeks left over at cdfreaks
  21. was the latest version before they started that damn ultracache http://oldapps.com/nero.htm
  22. http://www.chaintech.com.tw/a40_downloads.php for 9PJL apogee the flasher and guide are listed there http://www.chaintech.com.tw/Awdflash.zip
  23. just reboot into bios after a little prolonged use and read the temps and volts from there cpu should be around 50C, above 60C only when under heavier load they burn up around 80-90C
