When posting your XGD3 results make sure you include the following info. if you don't then your post will be deemed as useless and will be deleted and you will probably lose access to the forum.

Post the following images - remember to include the summary that includes the media code and pi/pif values



Include your EEPROM settings e.g

Smartburn = enabled
Force Hyper Tuning = enabled
Online Hyper Tuning = enabled

and IMGBURN settings e.g

OPC = enabled
Burn Speed = 4x

Include your connection setup (SATA Chipset and mode, or USB)

If you don't know any of the above info - dont bother posting as you won't understand how to do any of this anyway.

Batman AC:

Same Image file for both discs, second one has both Hyper-Tuning options disabled otherwise they are the same.
The Hyper-Tuning shows a slight decrease in Max PI although it's still extremely high but shows an increase in avg. PI.

Here are some interesting results:
This was after I flashed my 124 to 524 firmware. I then applied the appropriate LT Max firmware.
It's still not good enough BUT is a VAST improvement over the last two.
I'm going to burn it again with the features enabled now. Here it is:

Smartburn = enabled
Force Hyper Tuning = disabled
Online Hyper Tuning = disabled
OPC = disabled
Burn Speed = 2.4x

Batman AC:


I'll have some 003 discs to test at the end of this week but I seem to be getting consistently high PIs with 001s.
I've seen others with similar results. There's not much else I can think of to try until I get some 003s, I'll do some research on my chipset.

Try it and please post the results alongside your original ones. I had a slight PI decrease with them enabled.
Interestingly, I had an even bigger decrease after upgraded my 124 to a 524 and re-applied the appropriate LT Max FW.
It doesn't make sense that it would achieve better results in my mind, maybe it was a better disc.
