IoData DVR-ABH16W

Iodata has released his fw version for the LG4163
Can anyone with an iodata drive (and it’s serial number) download
this file and look at it

Thanks
Andrea

maybe iodata included pio/pif error return in this firmware//…??

Noone has this rebadge? :frowning:

4160B = DVR-ABH16W
4163B = DVR-ABH16A - it has not yet firmware…

416?B = DVR-ABM16A - it records DVD-R9 4x !

You are right…I was really sure to took a look at the right product page…my mistake sorry :stuck_out_tongue:

Nice discovery.

DVR-ABM16A its like a 4163 + -R9 x4…interesting…intersting…

It’s unfortunate it’s not 8x, but just 4x.

???

I mean DL writing speed. At least Philips is preparing for the launch of 8x DVD+R DL.

the DVR-ABM16A is not LG-4163 its panasonic SW-9585
if you check the site thoroughly it does say the drive is MATSUSHITA which is panasonic
also the DVR-ABN16A is NEC
and the DVR-ABP16ABK is Pioneer
so H is hitachi
M is matsushita
N is NEC
and P is Pioneer

newegg now has the panasonic drive for $60.99

US$60.99 for SW-9585 seems like a good price. Though cartridge for DVD-RAM is not allowed and 16x DVD writing quality seems very questionable.
