SOHW-1633S@1653S DVD-tests

First, tnx to all, who makes this site a great help for me :bow:

Second, my English is not that good, but I shall try to do my best.
:sad:

It’s a pitty that I did’t learned your site earlier. Otherwise I think I had never bought me a Lite-on SOHW-1633S

The last week I have read and learn alot about patching and tweaking.

Today I have burned several Dvd’s and tested with KProbe. These test I will share with you, maybe it’s useful for someone.

All the test are DVD-video(_ts), made with NERO or DVDDecrypter.
Used SOHW-1633S@1653S patched crossflashing to CS09.

Lite-On +R 8x (Included by the brander) mediacode: RICOHJPNR02.

Platinum +RW 4x (RITEK004) burned at 4x speed


I’m now testing 2 +RW more. When they where finished i will post them here.

One question, why is it not possible to tweak +RW DVD’s ?

Datasafe Media 2,4x RW (RICOHJPNW01) burned @2,4x

KProbe did not stop at the end, but for the rest it looks for me great.


SKS +RW 4x (RICOHJPN-W11-01) burned @4x speed


burned at 8x

i think my drive is dead
