4163 seems to have worked perfectly straight out of the box as expected.
I decided to burn 4.4 gigs worth of MP3`s to play on my standalone downstairs. Burned using Nero 126.96.36.199
The discs i used are Verbatim DVD+R 8x, Photo printable, Advanced AZO.
Inspection reveals they are made in taiwan. ser: ZC8365-DVR-X47B .
DVD identifier and Nero both report these discs as 12X - BONUS
Burned at 12X, process completed successfully in just under 10 minutes.
(is that about right?)
Reads fine on all my drives (4163 & sony DVD rom), and plays perfectly in the standalone downstairs.
So, encouraged by my early success, i downloaded the latest CD Speed to check writing quality, so i could post my results here. However, the start button is greyed out meaning i am unable to start the test. It recognizes the drive and disc ok but will not let me run quality check. Am i missing something?
Is CD Speed the preferred choice for LG drives when checking burn quality?
