LG still needs to tweak the firmware some as there were a few cases where the the writing quality could have been better. This program queries the drive to see what its reading and writing capabilities are. This helps to squeeze the maximum performance out of the CD. Founded more than 40 years ago, this Korean company has grown to become one of the world’s leading electronics manufacturers, offering everything from large home appliances to tiny mobile phones and MP3 players. While the CD Speed scans showed a sizeable PI spike at the layer change, the error rates were otherwise very low. In our tests, it not only had the fastest quick erase time out of the four drives here, it was able to do a full erase in an impressive 3:

The drive had no problems passing all of the on-the-fly tests and did not create any errors. The drive writes at this speed until about the 21 minute mark.

By reading these discs back at show-16735 speed, we can see if there are any readability issues caused by the number of errors or high levels of jitter.

The results with Memorex’s Ritek manufactured media were also better than I expected. While the diagrams are small, they are clearly labeled and easy to understand. Lote-on, you can start the setup process by clicking the “Install” button. Since POF errors are uncorrectable, we really don’t want to see any of them at all. Installing LG’s new “Super-Multi” drive in our test computer took only a couple of minutes.


This joint venture benefited both companies as it combined Hitachi’s engineering expertise with LG’s production and marketing capabilities.

Written oshw-16735 Karr Wang, this utility can be used to test the number of C1 and C2 errors on a disc. It should be UDMA4.

The results with Memorex’s Ritek manufactured media were also better than I expected. In our tests, it reached a maximum speed of about 4.

You said it took 6: By looking at the screenshot above, you can see that it uses a total of five “zones” to reach 48x. This means that LG’s new drive is capable of backing up titles protected by SafeDisc 2, including version 2.

This is pretty slow considering there are drives out there that can reach speeds as high as 16x. CD DAE will extract the audio tracks twice and then compare them. Many people consider InCD to be one of the best packet writing tools because of its simplicity and performance. PowerProducer lets you create a number of different movie discs.

dohw-16735 The media from Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim yielded some fairly good results. If you use a dual layer dohw-16735 you probably won’t get the best results because most DVD-ROM drives slow down to read them. Each benchmark test has been run three times.

Testing a drive’s DVD writing quality isn’t easy. I created about 8GB of random files and directories on my hard drive and then burned them to our test discs with Nero.

LG’s new DVD writer did much better this time around. I think this one looks the best actually for kprobe. While not as fast as some of the other drives we’ve looked at, its writing quality was quite good. Then Sonic’s DLA is used to test packet writing speeds. While the CD Speed scans showed a sizeable PI spike at the layer change, the error rates were otherwise very low. We use it in our testing because it can also be used as a quick and easy way to test the quality.

However, it did not seem to have any effect on readability. When testing the drive’s capacity I found that the drive was able to overburn up to Denec Those spikes look like they could be buffer underrun spikes where you are approaching 16x burn speed, or at least above 12x speed…did you notice any buffer underruns occuring at the end of the burn? With this in mind, I give the installation a 9 out of a possible I also put these discs through a “stress test” by reading them back at 16x with the DW
