Well it does see my Arita's 8x as 8x on nero cd/dvd speed.
It starts as 6x and ends at 8.02 with an average speed of 7.90.
Previously was starting at 6x and ending at... 6x!

Thanks for posting it.
Ευχαριστώ.

Still no support for Optodisc 16x DVD-Rs that they promised.... but at least it burns Optodisc 16x DVD+Rs well at 16x (in only 5:34!!)

Edit: It burns Optodisc 8x DVD-Rs *VERY* well too

I just bought this drive and it wouldn't recognize the first disks I tried. (BenQ 8x DVD-R).
Other media seems OK so far.
upgrading the firmware to A102 didn't help any.

Any other media incompatibilities I should be aware of?

Strange, the 8X DVD-R is the SONY08D1 media, and is generally pretty decent quality wise. There have been some issues with some users burning them with their LG (4120, 4040, 4160) at below the certified speed (media not recognized properly), but 4163 users have reported they burn fine.

So it didn't write at all? Also is it only the first disk that didn't burn? If it's more than the first two, try to take it back (you bought it at FS right?) and exchange it for the 8X DVD+R (DAXON AZ2), they're the same price plus they burn well on the 4163.

I personally am using BenQ 8x DVD+R (got a bunch of them real cheap at less than 0.30 CDN). They're by no means the best but they're certainly decent. They'll burn fine at 8x on the 4163 but other burners like the BenQ will overspeed them to 16x.

Btw I've run into an odd issue, all the DVDs I burned at 8x has a PI (and sometimes PIF) spike at the exact same spot. It's an issue seen on some other 4163 drives as reported in CDFreaks. I almost certainly not a media issue a person has tried with different media including MCC with the same result. I just got an exchange for a new 4163 to see if it happens on the second drive. If it does I'm just going to return the 4163 and get a NEC 3520 or something else.
