New 1633 writing cd's

Just replaced my lg drive with a 1633 retail new drive.

Writing a tdk dvd was ok, used ±r and both were ok

However writing cd’s is another story. My sony disks will fail or write with many errors.

Tried TDK’s snd they also are intermittant as well. Both media burned fine in a lg or sony drive.

Upgraded the firmware to the latest, but that did not help.

I am returning the drive.

Any sugestions on a reliable burner that will handle cd’s&dvd -+r disks.

Don’t think I’ll get another lite on.

Get a BENQ 1620A or pro.

get a Plextor PX-716A.

I neeed to be able to change the rom bit with k probe, what other recorders do that?

@ jerryray
Which 16x DVD writer should I buy?

Yeah who said the 1633s couldn’t write good CD-R’s here is a K-Probe of some
CMC CD-R disks that I picked up on sale at Walmart a while back for something
like $14.00 or less for 100 disks. The disk was scanned at 8x.

I’ve had the same CD burn problems at full speed of 48X; discs were skipping near the middle. After reading something online about slowing CD burn speeds to 1/3 of Max speed, the burns were very good at 16X and 24X.
