Help Trouble using Verbatim 16X DVD-R


Recommended Posts

I tried to burn Lilo and Stitch with IMGBurn using 16X Verbatim DVD-R Discs. It would not burn. My Writer is a Lite-On DVD+-RW SOHW-1633S BGS4(ATA). Posting Log here.

Your drive probably doesn’t support those discs.

A firmware update may fix that, but you’d need a patched flasher or whatever due to it being an oem drive. (From a Gateway pc possibly?)

Your using older firmware for that drive as you can obtain the newest (BSOY) from here... https://www.firmwarehq.com/Lite-On/SOHW-1633S/files.html

I would imagine that drive should be okay enough to finish the writing as I got a Lite-on 1673s drive, which is my original burner I got back in 2005, and that worked fine the last I checked. burn quality might be worse on that drive vs a bit more modern ones though as you can check your burned discs burn quality with a program called KProbe v2.5.2 (i.e. https://www.videohelp.com/software/KProbe )

on KProbe your mainly concerned with PIF's as 'optimal' would be to keep any single spike to 4 or less (although you can still be a fair amount worse than that standard and have a working/readable disc). but I suspect you will probably exceed that standard, but the main thing is as long as ImgBurn passes the 'verify' process that at least means the disc is currently readable. but KProbe will give you a better idea of the burn quality of the disc, like if your closer to higher burn quality or not.

there appears to be custom firmware for that drive to, here... https://archive.rpc1.org/codeguys/firmwares/dvdrw/ ; talked about a bit here... https://club.myce.com/t/liteon-1633s-new-firmware/161327 etc. it's been a while since I messed around with crossflashing etc though, so I forgot most of it off the top of my head. but it does appear you can turn that 1633s drive into 1653s if you want with Omnipatcher (https://archive.rpc1.org/codeguys/patchers/) etc as one comment I read on myce site said, "get the latest omnipatcher (thanks to the Codeguys) and make your 1633S a true 1653S. That way you will be able to use any 1653S FW straight from liteon site!!!". but if all of this sounds complicated, you can just flash the stock BS0Y firmware for your 1633s drive and see if that helps.

NOTE: all of the firmware flashing is done at your own risk! ; but if your drive does not work on those discs currently there is a decent chance a newer firmware will help.

Checking my Lite-on 1673s drive, with the newest firmware available for it (JS0D), with that same media and media code mine shows... "6x, 8x" for write speeds.

I think I can crossflash my 1673s to a 1693s drive etc, but I never bothered to do it. but who knows, maybe ill play around with it sometime. but I am curious if yours changes with a simple stock firmware update. but if not, I wonder if crossflashing to 1653s would improve it a bit etc.

but if what I looked up online is correct, you might get a potential burning speed upgrade on DVD-R media as it appears the 1633s is limited to a max of 8x burn speed where as the 1653s drive can go up to 12x burn speed on DVD-R media (both do up to 16x on DVD+R it appears).

with that said... if you want to be 'safe' I would just try flashing to the newest official firmware for your 1633s drive and see what happens.
