[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung SH-S203B / TS-H653B. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I am having problems with this burner. With Nero 7 and I was having trouble finalizing the disk about 50% of the time, so I switched to ImgBurn and it was better, but would have trouble finalizing the disk about 25% of the time. I then updated my firmware from SB01 to SB03, but now my 16x dvdrs will not write faster than 4.0x for some reason. I tried SB04 and it seems to have the same write speed limitation. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to the forum
What discs are you using? The latest problem (only 4x burning) sounds like a possible firmware support problem for those discs.
To help us further diagnose the problem, could you download and run CD-DVD Speed (or DiscSpeed, as the version that comes with Nero is called).
Put one of the discs into your 203B, then go to the “Disc Info” tab in CD-DVD Speed.
There you will find the MID info - please post that for us.
Hi,[quote=atlas2;2169796]I am having problems with this burner.[/quote]My standard question:
What Sata controller is used for the drive, and how is it configured in Bios setup?
