So I have a tsstcorp dvd rw ts-t633c with my dell laptop, I want to burn at speed 4x or 2.4x with imgburn, but nero info tool and imgburn tells me that the drive only supports write speeds 10x,16x,20x,24x.

So I searched online and found this forum, I read here that speeds depend on the firmware so I used this guide:http://club.myce.com/f105/mini-faq-samsung-dvd-writers-220607/ to flash with samsung firmware with -nocheck and patch with RPC01.

It worked great but the speeds are the same. Anyways is it possible to make the drive burn at 2.4x or 4x? Suggestions? Thanks!:slight_smile:

Is that the original drive in you dell? And what if you can tell us the service tag so we can at least know which laptop your referring to incase you can possibly upgrade the drive itself? But are you sure your drive is a dvd burner because the numbers you posted would indicate it can only read DVD not burn dvd as those speed seems more closer related to a CD-R burner drive???

Yes it can its this model http://www.samsungodd.com/new/eng/Firmware/FWDownload/fwdownload.asp?FunctionValue=view&no=687
Nero info tool tells me it can burn dvd and I have in the past but at the supported speeds, I need less errors on the dvd so I want to burn at a slower speed. Oh and the laptop is a Studio XPS 1647

Yo-

According to Dell specifications: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/STORAGE/S229659/en/spec.htm you can do DVD’s at 8x maximum and CD-R’s at 24x maximum.

You probably don’t want to write CD_R’s at less than 12x and DVD’s less than 4x - any slower is going to only result in longer burns without any quality benefits.

To echo bigmike:

[ul]
[li]The speeds you listed are for CDs, not DVDs.[/li][li]As such, those speeds are already pretty low.[/li][li]You will not be able to make the drive write at a lower speed than what you are offered with any INCREASE in quality; it would require the drive manufacturer to implement that kind of support.[/li][li]As such, the speeds you are offered will afford you the best quality you will get. Writing at slower speeds is not going to necessarily result in fewer errors.[/li][li](There are digital errors present on every disc, and these errors are taken care of by the error correction that pretty much every drive has. As long as you are using decent media and your burner isn’t cruddy, you will not run into any issues).[/li][/ul]

I’m aware that some people who burn media specifically for use in a PlayStation/PlayStation 2 (as an example) frequently proclaim that writing at an extremely low speed fixes playback problems, but there are usually many other factors at play and is simply luck of the draw.

Try having a DVD + or -R in the drive when you use Nero Info Tool.
I have Samsung drive in my desk top different model of course.
It shows down to 4X with a a DVD + or -R in the drive .
I’ve never burned at 4X on this type disc & most people don’t.
I think you are doing the test with a CD -R in the drive.
