Philips DVDR16LS LightScribe DVD Burner

I just posted the article Philips DVDR16LS LightScribe DVD Burner.

Philips Europe (NL) was kind enough to send us their latest internal DVD-writer - the Philips DVDR16LS. This drive is one on the first drives to support the new LightScribe feature/technique. Further this drive supports 16x DVD+R writing, 8x DVD-R and 2.4x DVD+R9 DL writing technology, allowing dual layer discs of 8.5Gb to be written.

I have used Video Vault and find it very easy ti use, good user interface (easy to understand) and reasonably fast as far as DVD operations are concerned. Of course I use the top Platinum software and the interface is improved. I would reccomend it to anyone. The only feature I’d like to see included is a compression funtion like DVD XPlatinum to fit my too large files for a standard disk.:slight_smile:

What a waste of time and effort this post was… :r This sentence was taken from X Software website… Video Vault has been discontinued and is no longer being sold or supported by X Software… :frowning: :frowning: So whats the point of even publishing it?

Current Firmware: version 2.0 (5/2006) Still only one officially supported DVD+R DL media (no -R DL support): MKM_____001 (Verbatim 2,4x)

Also, with Firmware 2.0 no Nero Quality Scan possible on my machine (Nvidia chipset, Windows drivers).
