#1

hey guys,

i have an big problem with my LG 4166B drive. IM trying to update an nav disc since days but the drive is always burning at 16x. No matter if i choose x2, x4 or anything else it always burns very fast. I tryed ImgBurn and clone cd.

Same with reading when i set read speed to 4x it also reads at about 16x. Can anybody please explain me why this happens?

My friend has an LG 4167B drive and he doesnt have this problem. He made an backup of this nav disc without problems its working fine but my doesnt because of the fast read and writing speed :frowning:

btw i even upgraded to the latest 1.02 firmware but that did not help.

Nero InfoTool 3.01

What exactly is a nav disc? Norton Anti-virus?

A satellite navigation disc I’d suspect.

yes its an navigation disc but thats not the problem about that… my problem is that my LG 4166B drive wont burn slower than 16x. Please guys help me out on that i dont know why i cant burn at 4x… even though i set Clone cd or whatever burning app i use to 4x it always burns at 16x.

This is a feature of this drive.

Please guys help me out on that i dont know why i cant burn at 4x…
Solution: Get another drive. A used 4082 (or better: 4163/4167) will do the trick.
even though i set Clone cd or whatever burning app i use to 4x it always burns at 16x.
This is because your drive supports your media at 16x min - you already posted the output of Disc Info. No software can change this.
Regarding your friend’s 4167, this drive has a different chipset.

btw: Your copy will not be better if you would write at 4x. You might try different media. Also these navigation discs are often copy protected.

Yes i know they are copy protected but my friend doesnt have any problems copying it and he uses same applications and same media as me so i assume it depends on the read / write speed.

What about the new LG drives? Which one of these is good and do they support slow read and write speed?
