My Lite On SOHW 16333S can't write on HP DVD+R DL

I have DVD Burner Lite On SOHW 1633S. The Firmware is BSOY.

And my first attempts to write on a Double Layer Disk was with a HP DVD+R and I couldn’t make it. Is there a posobility that these HP DVD+R are uncompatible for my burner? And is there a whay that I can find out which DVD±R DL are good for my burner?

Thanks in advance!

Get the unscrambled version of your firmware from codeguys.rpc1.org and run it through OmniPatcher to see which discs are supported. The HP are probably CMC MAG.D01. There’s only one recommendation for an old drive like yours really, and that’s Verbatim DVD+R DL 2.4x speed (MKM 001).

Welcome @cdfreaks.

Thank you for the advise. I did it and I changed the DRIVE ID. Now My PC tells me that my DVD is HP and it burned that HP+DVD DL.
Now there is another problem. My DVD Player LG DVD6054 seems not to reed DVD+R DL. I guess I’ll have to buy a new player.

You can use LiteOn’s Booktype utility to set the +DL to -ROM format for better compatibility on standalone players.
