Sh-w162z

I just got the SH-W162Z. What is the difference between this drive and the SH-W162C?

scan of Ritek media burned @ 8x



MCC-003@8x



Does someone know the answer to this? TIA.

A Discinfo output could help. :wink:

Or a look at http://www.samsungodd.com/eng/Products/Spec/Spec.asp
SHW-162Z is faster with DVD+R DL

Thanks. :slight_smile:

Yeah, right. :wink:

The SH-W162C spec’s from Samsung differ from the box I received my SH-W162C in.

DVD+R DL 8x, Samsung ODD says 5x.

Probably the SH-W162Z is a newer version of SH-W162C

" samsung odd’ mentioned above is a shit place with no help.
sorry for the word but i have losta lot of bucks buying this model.

Yes I got the thing replaced with HP “735d” . Which is another fun though.
NOW THERE IS NO PROBLEM. MY RW IS DETECTED, BURNING IS ALSO FINE.
I WANTED TO ENQUIRE HP WEBSITE FOR ANY UPDATES. TO MY UTMOST ASTONISHMENT THERE IS NO SUCH PRODUCT OR PRODUCT NUMBER FOUND AT HP WEBSITE. THEN WHO GAVE BIRTH TO THIS PRODUCT ? IT CAME WITH VERY NICELY PACKED HP CARTOON AND IT SAYS THE PRODUCT ID AS
"HP dvd735I dvd Writer".
for gods shake can hp clear this ?

What problems do you have?
Since when is this the HP section?
Since when this forum tolerates SHOUTING???

and the liteon people were complaining about their jitter values.

tried crossflashing to 162C TS11 with -nocheck option but drive won’t recognize anything. flashed back to TS01 without incident.
burned @8x
