Trial and errors. This is mainly depending of media quality and your DVDRW drives burning performance. Just try it out.

I forget which setting but one of those three will prevent overburns from happening. I know because I forgot I changed one to test something and it drove me crazy when overburn stopped working entirely on every kind of disc. Then I remembered what I did, lol - I think it was solidburn.
Looks like your memory is failing ck… Do you remember your posts in this thread back in 2’6.
No [I]“special”[/I] firmware is needed for overburning.
Stock [BenQ, Philips, Sony] firmwares will do just well for BenQ DW165* and it’s clones (Philips P166*, Sony 810, Litey DWD8801…). [/QUOTE]
No I think I made a confusing comment somewhere when I was talking about a different drive. The DW1650 does NOT need special firmware to overburn. I was commenting on the newer ihas b-series of drives, ie. 124b, etc. The ihas needs special firmware to overburn and is the only other drive I’ve heard of being able to overburn DVD than the DW1640, DW1650, DW1655 series.
Thank goodness Dell decided to use the dvd8801 which means there are many thousands out there, hopefully for years to come until bluray discs come way down in price.
