Awesome drive



Check it out!


damm… good scan ;]


Yes, it sure is!

I’m posting some great burns too, made by my 1673S.
Speaks for it self, ain’t it?


Have you tried to burn ANYTHING other than DECENT QUALITY MEDIA. The results are not surprising, infact I would be dissapointed if my MCC003 & TYG01 scans did NOT look like above. Try other lesser media and see if you are as happy!!!


I wont buy crap media. If it is crap, it goes back. I stick with Fugi from Best Buy or Verbatims. CMC sucks.


Hey, don’t rain on his parade. A lot of older Liteon drives wouldn’t even burn quality media with the above quality. This raises my opinion of the newer Liteon drives considerably. If Newegg drops them to $45, I will now be tempted.

What was the burn speed??




My opinion of Liteys has always been :cool: , until I got my BenQ 1620 Pro :smiley: . The only reason I say what I say is look at the following. I know that they are average quality discs, but this is my point. A burner should be able to do fairly decent burns, given that they are not feed total junk. Here is the log my 1620 Pro burn with DVD Decrypter

Now my 1673@1693S.KS04 finishes at 8min47sec, some 57sec longer than the 1620 Pro.


Prodisc R03 burned at 8x. Burned with an Nec 3520, but liton drive does the same great burn.


@The Black Wizard

My Last Couple Of Batches Of RiTEK G05 In Australia Have Been Of Very Poor Quality. :frowning:

I Wonder If These RiDisc Xtreme Are Available In Australia?


Once again, that’s my point. The BenQ can handle them no problems, but the 1673@1693S well :frowning:
And no I have not seen so those RiDiscs far…


I burned my TY G01 at 4x.

I’ve had 3 NEC DVD-Writers, and none of them produced such great results with TY G01 as my Lite-On does!



Does Any Of Your NEC Drives Do PI/PIF Scanning?

If So I Like To See One Of Your NEC Scan Results
Of One Of The Above Burns From Your Lite-:on.


bah … you ppl got so good DVD burners, you got luck :S … my liteon 1673s (KS04) … still is not burner i would want :S (medium quality disc’s) =S


My liteon 1673s totally stuffed up, it burnt everything fine from my hard drive but would not read any Original Movie DVD’s.




Also eastley & besmirch, have you tried KY01.


hmm i can, last time on that FW R+ was a bit better quality ;s, cuz i will w8 for new FW …

Maybe my pc cant handle DVD burning … cuz i will try 1693s from my friend … maybe its time to change PC …


@The Black Wizard
you can edit your posts…


I upgraded to the latest Firmware. It just stopped reading Original Movie DVD’s, it read previous burnt DVD’s made on the burner and my previous burner, it read all data DVD’s etc. But not Original Movie DVD’s.

And what is the KY01?
