DVD-ROM Forum

OK, with the number of DVD recordable posts coming in, we've split the DVD sectioin of the forum into "DVD Recordable" and "DVD-ROM". I've moved some of the newer DVD-ROM oriented posts over to the new section, but there are still a number in the DVD Recordble section.

I figured it was time to make the DVD forum selection match the CD forums.

Can anyone think of a better description than "DVD-ROM Questions?"

Lite-On LTD-163 Quiestion

Postby chubz9 on Sat Jun 14, 2003 11:03 am

Hi Ian,

I have read your review of the LTD-163 drive long time ago, and till now, I guess I want that drive. Have you tested any drive which is better than the LTD-163? Cause I am to purchase a drive soon.

I also noticed that the link of the firmware on your review of the LTD-163 doesn't work now. I even checked the lite-on website, and they don't have any listing of dvd-rom firmwares. That's one of the first things i look for before purchasing an optical drive, if the manufacturers post firmware upgrades regularly.

I just wonder where to get firmwares now for the dvd-drives, cause i think it will not be able to read DVD+R/RW media without it's firmware updated.

I also want a DVD drive, which would be able to read CD-R's burned using the HD-BURN technology. Sanyo said it would be read by drives whose firmwares are upgraded, don't know how true though, but I wanna just ask if you have a drive to recommend to me. Thanks.

LiteOn DVD-ROM drives are now sold through the JVC / LiteOn joint venture JLMS, so you need to go there to get firmware updates:

The XJ-HD166S is the latest LiteOn DVD-ROM drive. It is a good drive, if somewhat noisy. Read through the threads in this forum for various users' opinions on current drive models.
