  1. 1.05 firmware is latest http://www.noidea.f2s.com/dontasciime/GSA-H55N_1.05.7z If you do update firmware take notice of percentage when updating if it gets to 10% and errors out it will still say 1.05 firmware on next reboot but you need to change ide or usb enclosure to use a different one to update drive 100% I didn't include it in the post, but the drive came with 1.05. Thanks anyway.
  2. OK, that's good to know. Also, the GSA-H55N starts at 2.4x, but it also shows 4x as a supported speed.
  3. So I shouldn't be concerned that ImgBurn is reporting 4x as the supported write speed with this drive, while the media is supposedly only 2.4x?
  4. OK. So, I wound up getting the GSA-H55N along with the Lite-On DH-20A4P-04. Now I have a question. I installed the drives and was doing some "testing" to make sure everything was in working order. One of the things I did was try different blank media to make sure both drives detected the media. When I went to put a Verbatim 2.4x (MKM-001-00) disc in the Lite-On, ImgBurn reported this: I 13:19:01 Destination Device: [1:1:0] ATAPI DVD A DH20A4P 9P59 (D:) (ATA) I 13:19:01 Destination Media Type: DVD+R DL (Disc ID: MKM-001-00) (Speeds: 4x) Keeping in mind these discs are 2.4x, would it be advisable to burn them at 4x? I'm thinking that it's not, but wanted to get a second (or third, fourth, whatever) opinion. This is purely academic as I have other drives which report the correct write-supported 2.4x speed, but I'm very curious.
  5. Genius! Still funny, though!
  6. AVI files are highly compressed video files. When you run them through NERO/ConvertXtoDVD, the software decompresses the files, hence the larger size. Once you've got them where you can watch them on a standalone player (PS2 or otherwise), there really wouldn't be any reason to rip the video back to AVI format unless there's something in particular you wanted to do. I would just stick with what you're doing since it seems that you watch them on a device other than your PC.
  7. I'm not trying to offend anyone, but this post is hilarious. It answers everything, yet at the same time, it answers nothing! Now that's tech support!
  8. Yes, but I wanted the OP to answer that question so that the process could be made clearer to him/her and then perhaps they would realize where the descrepancy comes into play. Understood! They never mentioned anything about watching it on a standalone player, so I assumed they just burned the AVI's for archival purposes.
  9. Loco, I think you'll agree that it sounds like they're being converted seeing as how they're approx. 3GB when they're ripped back to the HD. Guardinalion, unless you're planning on watching them on a standalone DVD Player, there's no need to convert them to DVD-formatted video files. They can (and in your case, should) be burned straight to DVD as AVI files. Just build an image from the folder containing your AVI's; You'll obviously be able to fit a lot more than 2/disc.
  10. Oh, OK. Never thought to look in the 'Chat' section of the forum.
  11. With the drive in question the media issue is nearly irrelevant Out of curiosity, what's wrong with the drive?
  12. I looked to see if anyone had asked this (only because I think it is somewhat silly, but might be worthwhile) and didn't see anything. Would LUK! (and the beta team) be willing to take suggestions for funny quotes to include in the Status Bar when ImgBurn opens up? Obviously, which ever ones they choose to include would be at their discretion. BTW, I was watching Family Guy last night and heard the line where Stewie says "Oh, I feel so deliciously white trash. Mummy, I want a mullet!" That's what reminded me of this.
  13. Just to humor everyone, happyboy, what kind of media are you using? The ImgBurn log should provide that information.
  14. Wolverine, you may also want to try a Google Search. It appears as though you're not the only one that's had DVDFlick give that same message.
  15. Hmmm...never heard of it. Like I've been saying a lot recently, you learn something new every day.
  16. I would imagine it would just install the beta over the stable version; not sure if that would make a difference. Perhaps you may want to try ConvertXtoDVD; most people who've used it (me not being one of them) seem to like it. They offer a trial download before purchasing. Other than that, I think you're pretty much out of luck, unless you ditch the menus.
  17. The only other software that I've used to do what you're describing is (sighs) Nero Vision Express. It allows one to create custom menus. Other than that, I don't know of any other (free) software that does what you want to do.
  18. Have you tried playing the AVI file just to make sure it's OK? I've used DVDFlick many times, and it's worked perfectly for me. Perhaps you could try uninstalling DVDFlick and reinstalling it. However, like mmalves says, this really is a forum for ImgBurn support. If your problem persists, I'm sure there are plenty of other forums that may have this problem already covered. Good luck!
  19. If you are refereeing to the posted test in this forum - that test with a Lite-On is 2.5 years old and you should look at some recent models of various burners and go through posted scans over at CDFreaks instead for a more 'updated' view. Point taken...thanks!
  20. Well, at first I was considering a Lite-On, but I was looking at some of the PIPO scans using the Verbatim 16X DVD+R [MCC-004-00] media (which is what I typically use) and compared the different results from the different burners, and that's essentially how I arrived at this. Right now, I only own a BenQ DVD DW 1640, but I'm afraid that it might be on it's way out soon, so I want to make sure I have another burner for when it dies. I haven't purchased a burner that didn't already come with my PC in quite some time, so I'm not entirely up-to-speed as far as the latest models, specs, features, etc.
  21. Not that this has anything to do with any solution to your problem, burichi, but I think you can cross-flash that drive to a BenQ DVD DW1620.
