Is this an error? Auvio Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review. Is there any way I can improve my drive’s performance on the 8x and 16x burns?


As for IDE cable type, I lite on dvdrw shm 165p6s check this out and post in a few minutes. AML 00h Write speeds: So this box my Asus workhorse could do with another try as it was quite a while since I had the problems, in fact the reason for me joining CDF all I will say is that I could not get anything to work with the LG drive and went thru a lot of things but it was only when I replaced the ASPI that it all sprang back into life???

I own the same drive using lite on dvdrw shm 165p6s USB connection. This is bad Manufacturer: The ribbon is about 2 inches wide and each wire extremely thin, unlike older IDE cables that have the same width approxand less wires, each being relatively thick.

Burned at 12x General Information Drive: Does this fact nullify any results I got from those tests? I know little about disc quality so am really not sure what to look for. In addition, on top of the black front bezel, LiteOn has added one more color of choice for the end user, that of a silver bezel, covering most of the colour schemes of most users PC cases. MKM lite on dvdrw shm 165p6s Write speeds: Why, when I burned at 12x and 16x was the burn rate actually 8x?

Aspi is absolutely unnecessary on NT based Windows installations. See if you can totally get rid of Aspi. CPU Usage when burning is relatively high.


I crossflashed a previous drive to LiteON firmware and found the firmware had much better community support and worked much better than the original firmware for what 1656s wanted. There’s also an activity led which changes color 165ps on the function of the drive.

I tried burning another two DVD-R at 16x and this time got an average overall speed of All reading lite on dvdrw shm 165p6s burning tests were made with the latest firmware.

From the above tests I think I should stick to burning these discs at only 4x or 12x. Would you agree or are these benchmarks bad or lacking information?

Reviews Around the Web. I have now removed ASPI completely afaik so will try another test soon.

Any suggestions as to what might cause this? Does this mean that individual programs now come with their own ASPI or equivalent or is another approach taken 165pp6s

Media Used for ALL tests: Why did you cross flash the drive? Also, please inspect the blank 615p6s if you can see any anomaly. Some grey sqares also appeared. Please tell us, what kind of IDE controller you are using with that drive. Lite on dvdrw shm 165p6s I was having problems with the drive I thought I would do the same for this one.
