Is ASUS E616 capable of reading DVD+R?

Postby infini on Wed Jul 30, 2003 8:30 pm

Has anyone tested if this Asus DVD can read DVD+R? Any other DVD-ROM Reccomendations for DVD-ROM drivers that play DVD+R?

Look in the Reviews section, there are plenty of DVD-ROM drives that have been reviewed and tested with DVD+R media.

I bet the next post will be someone purveying the Lite-On LTD-163, LTD-165, or LTD-166. :P

I was planning on buying the Asus E616 back around April. When I went to their site to read the specs on the E616, they stated that it can read DVD+R discs. About 1 month later when I rechecked it, they removed that line - I don't know what that means. At the time when I did my DVD-Rom drive research - the Asus E616 was the only drive that play all the DVD discs: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, and DVD-Video.

Then take your pick, infini, there are quite a few DVD-ROM drives that can read all formats and can be somewhat region free. Either a software tool can make them region free, or you can keep resetting the regions over and over.

I suggest looking at the Reviews section for locating which drives can read all DVD formats. Specifically, look for 16X drives from Lite-On, Toshiba, and the like.

Well, you could always check out reviews from other sites, such as www.cdfreaks.com and www.cdrinfo.com

The LG GDR8161b reads all formats, strangely on the front of the box it states "Reads all formats EXCEPT +R" but I can assure you this drive reads all formats.
I write +R on a daily basis (Norton Ghost images) a verify the Images with this drive. I have 5 of them. One of the fastest drives I have come across reading +R's !!
It also reads DVD Ram and all the - Formats.
The ASUS E616 of which I have 3 also reads +R BUT for a ATA100 drive i.m.h.o SUCKS BIG TIME. I HATE THIS UNIT WITH A PASSION. Slow access times, makes funny noises (all 3 of them, manufactured May 2003) and just slow (spin up and reading) TERRIBLE
