WH16NS60 and Unrestricted read speed

Post by ferdieberfle » Tue Aug 06, 2019 1:11 am

I have the WH16NS60 with the latest MK firmware flashed. It works fine.

However, the "Unrestricted read speed" option tells me "Possible, not yet enabled".

Is there a setting I need to change?

If I need to wait for an update to the LibreDrive code for this, do you have any time frame for when you might get around to it? As I said, it works now, but would be so much nicer if it worked faster. :D

faster might not be better if the disks explode it has already happened to people at 8x i get the emails with the carnage asking for warranty

I bought my drive elsewhere and flashed it myself. I would be more than happy with a "secret" option to let it read faster, and would certainly not try to make any warranty claims against anyone... I actually have an IQ > 10. :-)

If you need a beta tester let me know. If I brick a drive, meh - I'll just get another one.
