Copying protected CD discs is not simple but lots of info available so go to gamecopyworld which is a good source of info.

Copying DVD discs is also not straightforward but lots of info available so go to doom9 which is also very good.

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

I now understand what you mean.

So your problem with GDR-8163B is that the drive cannot recognize and read the CD and DVD recordable disks that were recorded by other drives. Check what drives and media were used. GDR-8163B should be able to read any type of DVD and CD disks (except something like DVD-RAM though I'm not sure if it can read DVD-RAM or not which is not important in this thread.)

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

Can Samsung SW-252F read the same disks?

Run optical media identifying software to identify the media types.

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

Yes. Nero Infotool, Nero CD Speed, Smartburn (from Lite-On), K-Probe (from Lite-On), DVD Identifier, and lots of others.

Also try "Transfer Rate Test" tests with Nero CD-DVD Speed (3.61 being the latest released version) with the disks in Samsung drives. It may reveal some things. If the disks are low quality and/or poorly written, it increases the likelihood of being rejected in other drives.

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

Well yes 2x and below, don´t know what to do I installed last night adaptecs force aspi because nero detected that my system didn't have aspi layer installed. This was a failure because the dvd rom now whit aspi installed didn't recongnize anything. Killed the aspi layer and it all came back to where it was. Don't know waht to do and I can't trace the problem of the dvd drive so I think I'll throw it away and buy another. A Sony or something like that because I see LG devices cause alot of problems. If you have more suggestions I would like to hear. Thanks for bottering Kenshin.

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

The GDR8163 is known to be slow reading most DVD's. There are some other threads regarding this problem, though no one has such severe problems as you seem to have.

From my experience, the GDR8163 is good drive reading cd's and a slow drive reading DVD's , weather it is -R, +R ou DVD-Video it rarely goes over 8x (wich is crap for a 16x drive). Surprisingly once I tested it with an original PS2 DVD disc and it reached 13,2X speed. I've heard most DVD drives are made to be slow readind DVD-Video for some reason, I had a Samsung 616T and sold it for exacly the same reason, it was very slow in contrast to my previous and crappy Creative 12x...

@Kenshin
Yes, the GDR8163 reads DVD-Ram

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

Hey the nero info tool tells me the following things: supported read features:
CD-R;CD-RW;DVD-RAM;DVD-ROM;DVD-R;DVD-RW;DVD+R;DVD+RW;DVD+R DL;CD Text;
;C2 Errors. Read speed 52X; Firmware version OL23; Buffer size 256 kb Date ? ; Serial Number ?; DVD Features Region Control RPC II 4 changes left user and vendor; Region code 2. And that's all now I simply do not know what to do whit it because yesterday I had a DVD ripped whit Nero Recode (AnyDVD on for removing protection) and it worked great. The only problem it has its whit the cd,dvd that don't have copyright on them , or at least that's what i noticed. I didn't encounter anyone that has the same problem , although this dvd-drive is very common on internet in forums. I just seem to have bad luck. If anyone comes out whit any idea I would appreciate it even if it doesn't work I want to try everything before throwing it away. Thank You.

P.S. Kenshin would yo explain to me why in your country internet has so great speeds and it is also affortable? I saw it on one forum and I'm dazzelled.

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

Cheloo, did you manage to solve your problem?

I too have a LG GDR8163b drive and it has the same problem, it perfectly reads dvd's and original cd's but not backup cd's. The drive is brand new, the version of the firmwire is 0L23 (the latest version I think). It doesn't even read the discs written with my 4163 drive, LG blanks.

When I put a disc in, it tries to spin it and makes a strange sound, as if the reading head goes from one side to another;after a few seconds it stops, and when I try to acces the drive it says "Please insert a disk into drive E:"

Are there any other firmwires compatible with this drive? Maybe it's a firmwire problem and using one from another type of drive will solve it...

Zeri and Cheloo - you are not the only ones with this problem. My LG GDR 8163B drive will read anything and everything with consistency....but for some reason it will not read burned CD-R's, with the exception of a couple. I have no idea what the deal is, but the Lite-On I had on my other PC NEVER had this problem. I'm pretty irritated and no one seems to have a clue what the deal is.

Since you've tried nearly everything already, try one more thing :

Uninstall Alcohol 120%

See if that helps. If it does not, you can always install it back.

The Dangerous Brothers have a Rip-Lock removed version.
SL 16X and DL 12X

http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_file.php?si...e=LL23FST1.ZIP

The drive is still locked for recorded media.

Re: Hl-dt-st Dvd-rom Gdr8163b

i managed to read copyrighted material with hl-dt-st dvd-rom gdr8163b and for that u will need dangerous brother firmware. after you flash the drive you may read all types of media but slower than other drives. if after flashing drive not read dvd disc you must put a cd-r inside and view files then eject cd-r and insert dvd again.
