Hi all. I just picked up a 1650 to replace my tired liteon 1633s@1653s. It came with firmware BCDC, and using nero 220.127.116.11 with QSuite 2.1 WOPC on SB/OS on/on i burned my first disk (verbatim 8X -R, think it was MCC02) approximately 3 gig and it took about 6 minutes. I burned another set of files from dvdshrink (just over 4 gig) and the burn took 10 minutes, claiming to burn at 16 X according to nero. Am i missing something? Its running UDMA 2, shouldnt a 16X burn take less than 10 min?
The quality scores were very good (95 and 97 for the first two burns on the drive).
