Liteon SOHW-1633S disc problems

vbimport

#1

I got this drive because it was much cheaper then the Memorex 32023282 and did the same thing. I read all kinds of reviews for the Liteon and everyone of them says its a good drive, it can do this it can do that. But yet this drive seems to be incompatible with the Verbatim 2.4x DVD+RW discs and now the LiquidVideo 2.4x DVD+R’s which seems to write at 4x anyway. The Memorex could at least write to the Verbatim’s I don’t know about the LV discs because I never got to use them with it. I’ve updated the Liteon’s filmware to BS0S (the latest filmware) Here’s the log file after trying to copy a DVD to the Verbatim discs.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I’m so frustrated right now I should send this thing back to Newegg and find the Memorex again.


#2

I’d recommend trying BS41 for the +RW. It seems to burn +RW very well. Don’t crossflash to 1653S because the +RW is broken in the CSxx firmware.

You’ll need to provide a media report on the +R for me to comment further on that. You can use DVD Identifier.

#4

OPTODISCOR4 is not considered to be high quality media. I would recommend RICOHJPNR01 or PRODISCR03 for the best results in your 1633s at moderate costs.


#5

Thanks.


#6

I still can’t get it to burn to the Verbatim discs with the BS41.


#7

I found out why the drive won’t work. My transfer mode was set to DMA which causes Nero to produce communication and write failures. But PIO is slower right? So how can I get both of the burners to work together and Nero not to cause errors? And should dma look like this? I also checked my cable and tried it in another PC and it worked fine.
