24x PATA?

#1

Did LG ever produce a 24x PATA dvd rewriter? And if they did, wouldn’t it have a model number something like Gx24xxxx somewhere on the packaging and machine itself?

The reason I’m asking is that I’ve found an item for sale that’s ringing alarm bells - it has no LG model number on it at all and I’ve no idea whether they actually produced a 24x PATA device… So, does what I’ve described sound a bit off to anyone else?

Oh yeah, first post - greetings!

Its only 22X but its PATA, I cant remember any LG 24X PATA ( IDE) opticals but then again, the only IDE Opticals I use now are BenQs.

I think that LG only reached the 24x speed with their sata burners…
AFAIK,their fastest PATA drive was the LG GSA-H22L…but perhaps I’m wrong…:bigsmile:

I think you are right, the new LG SATA opticals are great , they use MDisc, and I am not talking about Bluray drives, I am talking about regular DVD drives for 39.99.

Regarding full-size (aka half-height) LG DVDRW drives:

No drive with a model name starting with GSA-H… is faster than 20x. Most top out at 18x.

The fastest LG PATA DVDRW drive I know of is…well, probably the one Alan listed above, something with the newer model naming scheme of GH22NPxx or GH22LPxx.

To get a 24x drive, it would have to be SATA, so you’d end up with a model name of GH24NSxx or GH24LSxx.

…If the drive is pulled from a computer as an OEM drive, then the drive name would be shortened to GHxyz – something like GH30N – so 5 characters total. There’s no direct way to compare the short OEM model names to the normal LG model names & determine speeds, but you’ll still not see a 24x PATA drive.

You’re right Albert,checked a few other sources against my original 1…:iagree:

Thanks for the input chaps - it’s in retail packaging that has no LG model number but does have ‘P/N: MAY62416842 Ver.A’ on the base of the box. Does that make any sense at all?


#8

Can you show us some pictures,or a link to see the drive?

It’s impossible to say what is it unless we see internal photos or at least all sides of the drive (bottom cover, rear, front)


#11

Perhaps it’s the oem version of the GH24NS50 :slight_smile:
