Hi, i got a LiteOn SOHW-1633S and I want to write a iso file. I use dvd-r from fujifilm and the max speed is 4x. But i want to write 2x and i can only chose 4x at Nero. What do i need to do?

What’s the MID code of the media.

Use DVD Identifier to get supported burnspeeds.

Fujifilm02, recording speeds: 1x, 2x, 4x.

Your 1633S don’t support that media at other speeds than 4x.

It’s the drives firmware that determine the actual write speed of the dvd-r.

Even if the disk support lower write speeds, the drive will not burn lower, than the firmware allow it.

The latest firmware for 1633S is BS0S.

Perhaps that firmware allow 2x writing with FUJIFILM02

EDIT: Just looked at BS0S and if I read Omnipatcher correct FUJIFILM02 is not supported. But uses some default write strategi

I also tried dvd-r from datawrite.

Is there a site where i can see the dvd-r who i can burn at a speed of 2x?

[DVD-R:INFOSMART01] is not supported either, if I read Omnipatcher correct.

You better read about Omnipatcher here. http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=97590

In that thread there a link to Codeguys, where you can download Omnipatcher.

With Omnipatcher you can see the different dvd-r speedsupport.

What the reason for only burn at 2x.

You’d need the code replace tool as well, to exchange an unwanted code for the new one, before Omnipatching to a likely code.

Since FujiFilm03 (before it was included) seemed to take reasonably well to being patched in and codeswapped to TYG02, maybe Fujifilm02 would work ok swapped to TYG01 (2x/4x on 1213 firmware, not sure on 1633)

Look at the media lists posted for firmware update announcements in the Liteon section here, to find what media and speeds are included.
