SHW-1635SX, Which Media is Recommended?

Re: SHW-1635SX

I prefer Taiyo Yuden 8X media. Either DVD-R T(YG02) or DVD+R (YUDEN00T02). Which one is recommended for this model?

Lastly, is the drive region free, and what firmware should I use?

Thanks,

Gary

Best media after some informal tests. Drum Roll. Taiyo Yuden DVD-R TYG01, TYG02.

Interesting. I found my 1693 with codeguys KC4B is much better with YUDEN000 T02; PIE peaks below 10 totals under 10,000 and PIF under 2 with totals less than 200.

Post some scans and watch for codeguys updates for your drive.
