First day with the brand new 1693S - KProbe graph



Well, this is the day I’ve purchased my very first DVD-Burner : LITE-ON SOHW-1693S. Already got 5 DVD+R’s burned. Attaching some KProbe graphs - the media were TDK 8X DVD+R’s, burned at 8X (however, the manufacturer is kinda interesting - Moser Baer India Limited? huh?)

you can make a screenshot when you click on the disk botton next to the stop button.

the scan looks godd, but the disc isn’t full.


Welcome danio_89 To The Forum

Can You Please Scan At 4x (Not Max)
Having 9 Errors On That Disc Is Not A Good Sign.
The Errors May Not Be There If You Rescan At 4x.


Okay. I did the test again at 4X speed.
Results attached.
Seems like 1693S doesn’t really make a lot of errors, while I heard that this drive is just :Z


Very Nice Burn danio_89

Moser Baer India Limited Is Certainly One Of The Better Media To Buy. :iagree:

Your Lite-On SHOW-1693S Should Be Fine If You Keep Feeding It Good Media.

16x Not So Good Waiting On New Firmware From Lite-On To Address This.

8x And 12x Burner It’s Been Very Good. :slight_smile:
