I've got a question regarding the BookType section of the review, on this page:
It's concerning the screenshot of Nero CD-DVD Speed's BookType settings window. I've got the same drive, and have the same greyed-out +R DL secion. Is there any explanation as to why the +R DL BookType settings apparently can't be changed? And is this limited to Nero, or applicable to the drive itself?
At this time, the 16x read for all +-R and the 12x read for DL ROM is only in the test firmware, as a special favor from Wind. I doubt that it will be in the official release for this drive.
The 165H6S is still Lite-On's most current drive, there still must be several firmware updates for this drive in the future before they stop... personally I don't see why it's so unlikely that Lite-On couldn't implement the same things in their official firmware. Assuming they know about all the test firmwares and stuff, they must realize there's a demand for that feature in the official firmware.
