The firmware uses automatic bitsetting. This, of course, is irregardless of the disc access light blinking its friendly green accessing-goodness-message and coming to a stop as if everything was peachy upon first closing the disc tray. Since the drive not being able to access standard discs with data on it was a clear indication of the problem, I booted in a MS-DOS environment using a Windows 98 Boot Disk, complete with CD-ROM support these little f’ers are trusty when you get into trouble. Well, we need an explanation of what 0xFFD is. Helpful 0 Not Helpful Flag. Any idea what is going on? Posted by lilipoot2 on May 28,

Not a good performance and almost identical to the Toshiba’s time. We used the sheep test found here to test how good the burner was at writing protections.

We delete comments that violate our policywhich we encourage you to read. I didn’t even have to run additional tests, I knew right then and there that the problem was a mechanical one with the closing of the drive perhaps the gears were no longer coming into the proper position to place the motor hub onto the hole of the disc or the laser eye became stuck in a position that did not favour starting on the first track of the disc I don’t know the capabilities of that drive, but expect something like DMA 2 or above.
Cute machine indeed but wouldn’t ts it for serious things. It had been two days of fiddling and the damn drive would not come back to me. This, of course, is irregardless of the disc access light blinking its friendly green accessing-goodness-message and coming to a stop as if everything was peachy upon first closing the b12n tray.
What this indicated to me was that, contrary to what many of the articles say online, that the problem is not software based like many would lead you to believe, but rather hardware based.

You are right, I was looking at the sticky post in this forum only. Windows will step down transfer speed of a drive if it has read errors. Any idea if this will burn at 18x, or is my only option to crossflash and try? Ashwin Nanjappa 4, 25 58 Get a 4-terabyte Jl 3.
