Is the black Philips SPD3300 external burner a BenQ 1655 inside ?

Isn’t it a LiteOn?

Maybe, but I can’t find any info… The 3300 doesn’t burn DVD-RAM and is LS.

ooops :bigsmile:

Hi,

as all external Philips drives were Liteon based, I think, the SPD3300 should be a Liteon rebadge. According to this link the drive does support DVD-RAM, so it can’t be a Benq 165x. My bet is, that this drive is a Liteon SHM-165H6S clone.
In addition, the “Name in Windows” column - SPD3300[B]L[/B] indicates a Liteon. Real Philips/Benq are marked with a [B]P[/B] there.

Also, Benq 165x and their Philips twins are UDMA2-drives. They are not able to reach 16x speed if installed in external enclosures.

Could this explain a poor quality scan when a 1655 in USB box try to burn @16X with overspeed on TYG02 ?

Hi,

Perhaps. Depending on the software and interface, these drives freak out if they are forced beyond 12x. Buffer fluctuation and other nasty things may occur. Just look at this thread: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=175536
