Lets try again,
My LG 4163b burns as high as 13x using dvd decrypter on verbatim 16x media (MCC004), not to mention decrypter lists the disc write speeds as this:
Supported Write Speeds: 4x, 8x, 8x, 12x, 12x, 16x, 16x
I have no idea why they are listed twice, but it bothers me more that it wont make 16x on mcc 004.
Anyone else have this problem or know what any of this can mean?
Hasnt anyone else noticed that the burn speeds for these and MANY other discs are listed in double like this with the LG 4163??
I am desparate, I have reinstalled windows, as a finally resort and it didnt change a thing. I cant keep testing 16x disc everytime I try some new small tweak in hopes that it will fix this, because I have little money to spend on $30/25 pack dvdrs.
PLEASE, can someone shed some light on this. Maybe its normal for this behaviour, and I can put my mind at ease, if not, I would like to return the LG before its too late, and I lose my money.
thanks in advance,
EDIT: I forgot to mention that it does only takes 5:50-6:00 minutes to burn a dvd rip (main movie, full 4.47GB dvd+r) with this drive, so is that not 16x? It lists the locking in at 12x after the buffers goes nuts and drain to nothing then go back up. Maybe dvd decrypter has a problem showing correct info with this drive.
