Scans of LG-4163B burns

vbimport

#1

I Just bought a 4163B from newegg and I did some some test scans

nero speed3.55 create data disk.

HP branded cmc E01 +R 8x at 8x burn time 8:07

FujiFilm branded yuden T02 +R 8x at 12x burn time 6:41

comments:

I have not had good luck with this cmc E01 media, I think it could be a bad batch. As to the yuden T02, judge for you self.


#2

Not the best T02 scan, and not quite fast too. :stuck_out_tongue: Do you have some MCC004, KenW?


#3

MCC 03RG20 might be better (for tests) since there have been enough MCC004 screenshots. I don’t know who sells MCC 03RG20 though. :sad:


#4

no Im out of mcc004 , used them up on plextor 716 testing. :frowning:

I have some fuji film -R 8x I will do -R test as soon as i finish format dvd-ram 2x Im going to make dos 6.22 boot disk out of it for old dos games, a 4.3gb dos disk hehehe.


#5

I cannot wait and bought a 4163…
My first test was a T02 ( sold as TDK )
I was really surprised that it just reached 8x max speed, however, overall quality is really good
I’ll try to burn another one soon





#6

Is the write speed set for “MAX” in CD-Speed? Then, there must be a problem. My YUDEN000T02 and RICOHJPNR02 sometimes drop to 8x somewhere (from 12x) but never burn like that.

DVD-R test

nero speed3.55 create test disk

FujiFilm dvd-R 8x at 8x fujifilm03 burn time 7:53

Sorry I have no 12x rated 8x media.



#8

Just for comparison here is Philips 8x CMC MAG E01
Again some speed problem, but quality remain really high





#9

@kenshin

Yes speed is set to Max.
I’m doing another test right now…let’s see

Really better now, maybe a defective media…or perhaps just the real first burn

thoughts on what we have seen so far.

The LG-4163B seems to good burner, I have not had coaster yet, even my poor E01 burn showed no CRC read errors when read with my nec 3500 drive. I do think the next fw will help a lot usually the first fw is never as good as later ones.


#11

Feel like raiding Singapore MCC plant. lol


#12

So far i haven’t seen any 8x DVD-R that can overspeed to 12x. :sad:


#13

Sen

on older benQ 1620 fw B7L9 and before fujifilm03 -R 8x would do 12x, but later fw they moved it back 8x, all my other dvdrw drives only burn it at 8x as well, you are correct very fw 8x -R will overspeed in fw’s to 12x

DVD+RW test

fuji brand +RW 4x ricohjpn-W11

Disks very from brand to brand even if they’re the same MID code. The first post I did to this thread had t02 and E01 the E01 was HP branded cmc E01 and it was horrible.

This is a scan of an E01 also.

TDK DVD+R 8x cmc E01 burned at 8x burn time 8:02

nero speed 3.55 create data disk.

94 score not bad, my w11 had been used for testing, for a while and also used on my settop dvd recorder. I think if I had a newer RW disk it would have less errors. They do get old.


#18

This might be of interest to some. Here is scan of the above cmc E01 TDK branded media run on my plextor 716a TLA:0101 fw 1.03
