Every 1 on 5 DVD's or CD's that I put into the drive start to make a scratchy noise like if the DVD was just flying loose in the drive, no grip at all, just spinning madly.
That BS41 was a disaster for my burner, first of all not 1 DVD got burned well, all unreadable afterwards. secondly when I wanted to test to write a DVD-R at 12x it made such an incredible noice of scratching that I thought the drive was gonna break in a thousand pieces.
So no thanks, I stick back to BSOS, but like I said the scratchy noice is not gone so I guess the drive will break sooner or later .... just lucky I still have warranty.
Maybe a difference between a US 1633s an an european??
