    Recommended DVD Writers for Navigation software

    The most important thing while selecting a DVD Writer is the choice of the chipset used
    Typically writers with a RENESAS chipset produce high quality copies of copyprotected cd's and DVD's

    Check here:
    http://www.videohelp.com/dvdwriters?...&orderby=Price


    One of the best writers in the field is the LG GH22NS40 also for writing Blaupunkt TeleAtlas TravelPilot DX CD's
    Since writing this item it has been brought to my attention that many users have encountered problems writing a proper functioning copy with this writer.
    I suggest to no longer use this writer as a dedicated writer for navigation DVD's although some have made perfect copies with it


    News as per Dec 16th
    It has been reported that the presently available Lite-On writers with Mediatek Chipset are performing very well

    The Types are;

    iHAP122 PATA drive
    iHAS124 SATA drive
    iHAS324 SATA drive (Can be cross flashed with 1.13 FW to Plextor PX-880SA)

    HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH15L (made by LG and commonly mounted on HP computers)




    Speed setting

    Every writer has a media table in memory
    It is determined what the optimum speed is for writing the various media

    It is a mistake to think that slower is better.
    In fact a DVD written at 2.4 speed may be almost illegible and the same media written at 4 speed can be near perfection
    So let the writer/program decide for you what the minimum or automatic speed is

    Results of writing media can be checked with Opti Drive Control or DVDinfoPro
    Interesting website:

    Please also visit the forum of the Imgburn website
    It will certainly answer your question much bettter than here

    Hi,

    Please notice that TSST L-632H writer (Dell XPS M1710 laptop / Windows Seven 64bits), firmware v10, v20 and v30 used with Nero Burning Rom v10.0.10 or ImgBurn v2.5.1.0 doesn't work.

    Regards,

    Wado

    Post Re: Recommended DVD Writers for Navigation software

    Please tell me what DVD writer do you recommend that support 1x for DVD (RNS-E MMI 2G) and also 1x for CD (DX FX)

    I already have Pioneer 116D v1.09 with modded firmware but I have managed only to enable 2.4x for DVD (Verbatim) and 4x for CD (Verbatim)

    I have also LG GSA-H22L and I cannot manage to enable slower speeds (lowest are 4x on DVD Verbatim and 16x on CD Verbatim)

    regards

    I am not aware that there is any DVD writer that can burn slower than 2.0 x. Mostly 2.4 is the lowest!
