DVR-104 Firmware may restrict burning speed to 1x
Authored by: shmerls on Nov 22, '07 08:09:47AM

it's Thanksgiving 2007, and in addition to wishing all a happy one, it's been a year since the last post here so I'm wondering about doing the upgrade, if it applies.

I'm having an issue where a DVD 16x won't mount and my DVD-104 (firmware A227) tray eventually opens automatically, thus rejecting the DVD.

The same disc mounts quickly on my Wallstreet laptop. Both computers are running Tiger. On the 104 in question, it is 10.4.11

I'm also seeing other DVDs and CDs taking awhile to mount. I'm not sure if the problem is my DVR-104 drive or fixable by the 141 firmware hack, mentioned here.

I've also had a lot of rejected burns at the end of the burn I get messages about the burn not being able to be completed due to a media issue.

It is mentioned here a lot about 4x media, but I have an Apple 2x DVD-R that is a dupe backup of my Tiger 10.4 disc (my original is in the office, really, I own it) and this takes a long time to mount, but eventually does.

But, the media is rejected at the end of the verification process before doing an install, thus the media is useless.

So I'm wondering, if it's my drive or a 140 firmware issue. Or both?

The drive is original on my Quicksilver G4 867, 1.5GM RAM

Thanks, Steven
